“Wistorical” takes a daily look at the most fascinating stories in Ireland’s rich history
Or what about the elaborate Conolly’s Folly in Co. Kildare, built for famine relief in 1740? Or Bindon Blood Stoney’s diving bell? And muse upon the Moone High Cross with its 1200-year-old depiction of Abraham and Isaac, or the creation of Merrion Square in Dublin and Eyre Square in Galway.
Consider the wake of Big Bertha, the oldest cow in the world, or the Castlecomer coal man who got a lift home from the pub on his horse. And what about the 140-year-old Countess who fell out of an apple tree?
