Archaeologist believes crannóg site has been discovered in Co Galway
Local man Jimmy Ó Céide discovered the site while out walking after Storm Brendan.
Archaeologist Michael Gibbons said the site is of great importance and that he believes that it is a crannóg. However, this is yet to be confirmed.
A crannóg is an ancient fortified dwelling constructed usually in a lake in Ireland or Scotland.
Gibbons told RTÉ that there are very few sites like this in the country and that there was evidence that people had lived in this coastal area of Galway since 7,000 BC.
