Taking advantage of the soft morning light the Aghada/Whitegate Graveyard research group conducted a geotagged photographic survey of Garrankinnefeake this morning. We will publish the photographs later on but for now we can publish a file which records some of the sounds of an historic graveyard in Ireland. Nothing much happens, birdsong and the distant chatof community volunteers is all you hear but the sounds, voices and accents are distinctive to the east side of Cork harbour. They form the aural backdrop of a day of archaeology.
