    1. Hi Mal – the wall is now a pile of rubble & has taken many hits. It shall be rebuilt to a meter in height (before coping) along roughly 50 meters of coastal road. Hope to see you there!

    1. Thanks Bridget we are hoping for a good turnout, with fifty meters of wall to build, we need it. The carving picture is Brendan Mc Gloin’s work, who shall be running workshops at the event.
