We thought we had reached the bottom of the outer ditch but a charcoal spread which appeared in the last two days, indicated that this was not the case and now it continues to go down thanks to the hard work of Joseph Moran, Helen Stout and Ciarán McDonnell with lots of help from Sadhbh and Richard, Peadar and Maria. The dynamic duo of Mattie (the Mattock Mattison Interian) and Matt with the help of Siobháin McCormack (of Bective Abbey fame) have finally bottomed the great pit. Tom and Craig continue to go down in the inner ditch. We were thrilled to see members of our family arrive on site during the day. Natalie (Geraldine’s niece-in-law) with our youngest visitor Theo (who is ten weeks old), Emily, Linda and Siobháin did a great job on the sieve. We also were delighted to see Barbara and (little) Geraldine (two of Geraldine’s nieces) with Hayden, Leo and Brody. In the afternoon our friends from Drogheda, Rachel, Nicola, Erris, Mede and Connie joined us on a tour of the site.
Our Notre Dame intern Mattison Interian was a guest on radio LMFM’s ‘Late Lunch’ Gerry Kelly’s afternoon show. She spoke about her football career and her time in Ireland.
