About:   An article by this Grangecon author on various archaeological features known to him as well as historical snippets gleaned from conversations with locals. The area covered ranges widely from Glen of Imaal to the Carlow border. The amount of information on each topic is relatively sparse and probably deserves fuller treatment. The biggest section of the article is given over to the family of Rev. Benjamin Neale.
