I am just returned from a trip to a speck of land on the bottom of the globe as near as possible to the exact opposite (its antipode!) of Forkhill, where I hail from!
The actual point is in the sea but my wife Betty and myself landed on the uninhabited
The Europeans know they are a fairly recent addition to the islands but the Maoris are “ancient”!
Imagine their surprise when I told them about the Kilnasaggart stone which was put up by someone with the same family name as myself – but who died over a hundred years before the first human (maori) set foot in New Zealand.
AND that stone is very recent compared with the really old stuff – the Clontygora Court Cairn nearby, for one example. They struggled to comprehend.
I wonder if we were the first people from around Newry to go there?
