Lime kilns were once common features of rural Ireland. Unfortunately, most have been destroyed or have faded into the landscape. The lime produced helped to transform the surrounding countryside, turning stony pasture and boggy ground into fertile fields for tillage, pasture and tree plantations. Join us on a tour to talk all things lime and see repairs on a 17th Century Grainstore undertaken this summer. Wear outdoor clothing and walking shoes. Leave no trace.
