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.
