In Ireland the ancient craft of building with stone stretches back thousands of years to some of the magnificent dry built tombs and ritual sites of our ancestors. Stone as a material is closely linked to the history of any civilisation that was relatively sophisticated and stable. As part of our valuable heritage people are now realising the beauty and durability of stone. The courses at Ballyhugh cover building new walls in the traditional way using the appropriate methods and materials
