Subject: This site is superb

My late father instilled a love for all things ancient and he would so love to have shared in this. His great friend, the late John Maher, from Windgap in Co Kilkenny was intrumental in encouraging the excavation of 'The Coshel', near the Slate Quarries. My father was asked by John's family to design John's tombstone. Central to the inscription was a sketch of the Coshel. Thank you so much, Martin.

Subject: Great site

This is a wonderful site to educate the world on the ancient history of Waterford. I wish we were taught about the the wealth of history that was on our doorstep when we were growing up...but its never to late with great sites such as yours.

I have not been to this part of Ireland and David hasn't been to Ireland at all. Your website is well done and is a great introduction to Waterford and its prehistoric history. This gives us another good reason to visit your part of the world - hopefully soon. Well done, Martin.

Hi Martin, I and my wife have just come back from our thirteenth trip to Ireland.
As soon as I have time I'll update my database with the latest visits.
Unfortunately we haven't had the chance to go to the southern counties... next time we will start from them.
Glad to see new entries in your website! Great!

Subject: Kilbryan Upper - Stone Pair

My mum owns that field and I've always been intrigued by them.
The ordnance survey map shows a Fulacht Fia directly east of that spot down the hill next to the stream. I've often trekked up to the Stone Man in the Gap.
Great site, keep it up.
Rob.

Great site, lots of useful information.
Did you know about a portal tomb at Gurteen, near the Suir. It was photographed by Dr Hemphill of Clonmel in the pioneering days of photgraphy
