Really? Thank you. I really appreciate it. I may have said this already
but my memory is terrible. I was at Dun Aonghosa this past summer and
whilst I was there, the group called THE DISCOVERY PROGRAMME was
excavating. They said that they would be done either by late 1993 or
early 1994. So perhaps it wouldn't be in "Guide........Monuments". I did,
however, write to both the Archaeological Services Unit of University
College, Galway and the Cork Historical and Archaeological Society.
Perhaps they could help as it seems, at least from their names, to be
dedicated especially for that.
