Phase II Excavations

Phase II of the Grassroots Excavations have been progressing well over the last few weeks. We would like to thank all of the local people who have been down to see us and to learn about the project. Thanks also to the pupils from St. Laurence O’Toole’s and the first year students from Pobalscoil Nessan who came down for a site visit last week. Here are some photos of the Phase II activity to date.
