Another busy day, and the tv were here!

Thursday was a busy day..

We were delighted to have a large group from the Clogher Historical Society for a day’s outing. The group made a day of it and brought a big picnic. Nick gave an excellent tour of the castle and some of the group went digging for the afternoon!

George joined Camilla in the new Cutting 7 at the base of the latrine chute – first find was a coin (modern) - it looks like someone literally ‘spent a penny’ here. Lots of digging left in this one and George promises to be back for more!

We also had a film crew on site from Tern TV who are filming a new monthly magazine series called The Gaitherin which will be on BBC in a few weeks (we will keep you posted).

Site director Fintan Walsh, project leader Nick Brannon, Camilla Brannstrom and George Knight from the Clogher Historical Society were interviewed and the crew got lots of great shots of the castle and the ongoing excavations.. Twas a great day, and the sun, on cue, popped out for a while too.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Clogher Historical Society for joining us on Thursday and also for volunteering in the Cuttings over the last few weeks. You can find out about all the great work that this society does at
