The story of the Ormond and Victoria slate quarries is passionately told by Leo Cody of Ahenny. His family owned the land where the quarries were sited. These quarries created great economic activity in the area. Our journey finishes in Knockroe passage tombs, a prehistoric burial area, which is illuminated by the winter and summer solstices.
