Two small items today, via the Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland..

‘The new Irish Walled Towns Network Facebook page has just come online. Its hoped that all members of the Network and others interested in medieval town walls will use this page as a forum to exchange ideas. Anyone can upload photos, news items or ask questions of other people in the group. I plan to keep it both current and interesting with plenty of photos and information. Make sure to recommend the page to others who would be interested in the work done by the IWTN.


And this from Boyne Valley Tours on Hallowen:
