“It is just over a month since our trip to Limerick and visit to Lough Gur. On behalf of the North Wexford Historical Society I would like to thank you for providing us with an excellent tour and making the history of the area alive and interesting to all present. I had always been aware of the significance of the area in broad archaeological terms but when it is presented by someone with a deep knowledge and passion for the locality it really comes to life.”
