Boreen Bradach, Kinnegad

My thanks to Kayleigh for sharing this personal story from when she was living in Kinnegad!

We lived on a back Boreen a couple of miles from Kinnegad. The council bought surrounding fields and planned to build a housing development. Building started but abruptly stopped when skeletal remains were found.

Archaeologists were out for months and they determined it was likely an old monastery site. Construction was no longer allowed. Click here to view the actual report.

Anyway, at the end of that summer my dad was digging in the garden and my mam got a photo of him. It was only looking at the picture later that she noticed something in the background, watching him. 

There was no one else around that day…..   What the heck was under the spot he was digging!?
