Outing To Seskinan/Knockboy on 16th August

The summer outings for 2015 will continue on Sunday 16th August with a guided tour of Knockboy/Seskinan church site with guide Dr. Nora White. 

This trip is a follow up to a lecture given to the society by Dr. White last October entitled Ogham Stones of County Waterford. Some of the ancient Ogham Stones in the area were built into the fabric of the church by the medieval builders.


 From Dungarvan turn off at the Master McGrath monument taking the R672 road for Ballymacarbry/Clonmel. Continue on this road for about 9km until you come to a shop at a cross roads. A very short distance further on take a right turn (L5111). 

After travelling 1.5km up this road turn right at sign for Knockboy Graveyard which leads down a narrow lane to the church.

Meet at the church at 3pm, or at the shop at the cross roads at 2.50pm.
Cost: €5. Members no charge.
