I first went to Feleystone in Paulstown, Co. Kilkenny to price the stone for the final piece. They kindly gave me a small block of stone for the maquette. However, when I got the stone home and cleaned it, I found it was much to busy (too many fossils).  I got another block from Philip Hardings in Bagenalstown (kindly donated) which was much more suitable.

“Cherryorchard” – what is in a name? The housing estate is called “Cherryorchard”. It is not a name picked by a developer but is in fact the townsland name which has been in existence before 1829. The housing scheme is actually in the Enniscorthy townsland, however the Cherryorchard townstown is adjacent.
