Mourne Wall
I was just wondering if anyone would know of any good books or resources on the history and particularly the building of the Mourne wall. The likes of Wikipedia has some info regarding the likes of why the wall was built etc. However I was looking for more of the likes of photos of the men actually working on it and how they did it. It doesn't seem to be a well covered subject. Other than acknowledging its there, it’s fairly impressive and it was built by the water authority to show the catchment boundary, other info is scarce.
Hope someone can help.
Thanks.
