By September 20, 2015 at 10:26 am

On walkabouts in the Valley recently, we discovered that farming activity has placed Sousterrain ME032-049 in danger. This Sousterrain is located opposite Rath Lugh on the Lismullin side. It is obvious that heavy machinery went on top of it’s roof recently during ploughing. This matter has been reposted to National Monuments. TSPG continues to monitor activity within the Valley.
