Ancient stone chamber unearthed in garden
Published on Wednesday 13 August 2008 10:41

An ancient underground chamber which could date back 2,000 years has been unearthed near Clonmany in Inishowen.

Discovered by Clonmany man Sean Devlin, the previously unrecorded structure appears to be an underground tunnel or souterrain.

Mr Devlin revealed yesterday that he first discovered the underground chamber several years ago while landscaping his front garden, but didnt make much of a fuss about his amazing find at the time. The historic significance of the tunnel only became apparent recently after Mr Devlin showed it to amateur archaeologist friends.

1. That is soo cool
I wish I could find something like that in my backyard. Unfortunately we have about an inch or two of dirt and then limestone and that's it.
