We are pleased to include an article from The Gentleman’s Magazine about Ardmore written in 1864.
Haven’t read that for years! I love reading about the area, there are quite a lot of versions of the reliefs knocking about, for that matter the Ogham stone as well. If any of you want to give me a shout one day I will meet with you and show you the best way to actually see ALL the details in the images- I’m not the best at writing it down, but some of them are really beautiful-if you can really see them, which depends on your position and a camera will pick out some details the eyes wont. But you have probably seen it from every angle for years! Still, offer stands.
Thanks for letting me know about the artical.
