Recorded by Fidelma Mullane. This is a Marian Year Grotto built in 1954 on land donated by the Kenny family, Stoneville, a previously Protestant family that converted to Catholicism. The grotto was built using local voluntary labour organised on a 'Stations Area' basis.

In the accompanying audio Raymond O'Sullivan tells us some of this history.
