The conversation begins with a description of Michael Conry’s own background, and his reasons for deciding to come to Carlow. His work as a geologist focused his attention on research and study of the Carlow stone and he has published many books on this subject. We toured the county, visiting the localities which featured stone fencing, unique to the county of Carlow. Michael spoke warmly and admiringly about the stone-cutters and their incredible craftsmanship.
