A chairde,

Bhí muid ag labhair faoin Gobán Saor. Léigh mé é seo inniu:

Tipperary
A yew tree which is believed to be the oldest in the country has been put
on public display in the forecourt of the Horse and Jockey Inn Hotel in
Thurles. The tree was found preserved in a bog close to where the
Derrynaflan Chalice was found in the 1980s, which is also a site
associated with the legendary architect and builder Goban Saor. It was
this connection that prompted the inn's owner, Tom Egan, to have the
4,000-year-old tree displayed in the front of his famous premises.
(Irish Emigrant - 32 Counties)
