Day 18 – The Final Countdown
August 26, 2009, 10:57 am
Filed under: Uncategorized

On this day the final recording of the post pads in Cutting B took place and the section faces were drawn. Cuttings A and E refuse to bottom out. A medieval ditch (at last) is found in Cutting E, hidden under what we first thought to be the natural subsoil. Brendan (from Trim), Andrea (all the way from Wexford), and George (a guide at Loughcrew) toiled relentlessly through the day to empty the ditch. Meanwhile, Farnan brother and sister, Stephanie, Siobhán, Aine and Liam stepped up the pace in Cutting A.

Distinguished visitors Denis Boyle and Sylvia FitzPatrick from Kilmoon are shown the post-pads by co-director Geraldine Stout.
