Dave Pollock

The first outdoor panel I produced in Ireland was in 1995, for the Rock of Dunamase, Co. Laois (National Monuments Service, OPW). A central reconstruction drawing and text in two languages was screenprinted onto the back of a rigid transparent sheet, held against a board. I had three colours to work with (two overlays and a background), and large type.

The 2008 panel for Monasteranenagh Abbey, Co. Limerick was printed on the front of a steel sheet in 12 colours, from a CD. The panel was twice as big, for half of the production cost (drawing and printing) of the 1995 panel.    

I research, draw, write and design panels, or work with other designers and writers. For a while in Scotland I screenprinted the panels. 

About Us

We are both on the list of archaeologists eligible for excavation licences. Every archaeological excavation in Ireland needs a licence, issued jointly by the National Monuments Service and the National Museum.

Archaeological Illustration

We illustrate our own reports, and integrate the drawings into the text rather than add them to the end. We draw finds and offer an illustration service to produce publication drawings from site records and objects.

Archaeological Fieldwork

Most of our fieldwork (excavation and survey) is carried out during archaeological impact assessments, or as a follow up, monitoring or investigating areas at risk of being disturbed.


In Ireland I have put work into the Cahir Castle (Co. Tipperary) souvenir guide, and the Barryscourt Castle (Co. Cork) and Scattery Island (Co. Clare) leaflets, all for the National Monuments Service, OPW.
