The Contraption

A strange Contraption was spotted this weekend on Seagrange Green by many Baldoyle locals. The Contraption, resembling a mix between Molly Malone’s famous cart and the Mars Rover, was in fact a high tech piece of survey equipment.

Grassroots used this piece of kit to conduct a magnetometry survey of the Green as well as several of the larger gardens in the area.

Results to follow soon!

Many thanks to Rubicon Heritage for allowing us the use of the survey equipment.  Finally, big thanks to the local lads and lasses who suspended their football game to let the survey go on!
