You may recall this photo of big bale silage making in Mayogall with the new Chapel and Spire in background. Young farmers, Ben, Eamon and Edward who made these bales, recently showed me coloured stones found after the bales were fed to their cattle. These pebbles have probably come from the graves in the nearby churchyards. Owners have recently had to take measures to prevent birds from taking them for whatever reason and then dropping them in the local fields.

Parishoners have noticed some curious marks and a plate along the bottom edges of our Chapel since the intensive renovation cleaning  of the stonework.

Apparently these are called benchmarks and are to do with Ordnance Survey but are no longer in use. I will leave the reader to do the usual google searches for more info.

The first is at the entrance gate to the Chapel at the corner where apparently a stairway led to an underground store ( So I am told)


The second is a metal plate bearing the letters OS and BM with the number 3578. It is at the East side main altar corner near the distinctive Fr O'Kane grave at the roadside.

The parish does not have any info or history about when these were placed on the chapel.
