A significant archaeological find has been unearthed in the village of Two-Mile-Borris, the Tipperary Star has learned.

The find centres around the site of the original ancient village settlement of Two-Mile-Borris close to the present day village at the rear of the existing Black Castle and near the adjacent river on land owned by local man, Pierce Duggan.
The find is thought to similar to what was discovered in Lough Gur in Co. Limerick and dates back to the Iron Age.
The Iron Age marks the period of development of technology, when the working of iron came into general use, replacing bronze as the basic material for implements and weapons. It is the last stage of the archaeological sequence known as the three-age system (Stone Age, Bronze Age, & Iron Age).
