Brian Carlyle - June '06
Why was the Mourne Wall Built
Was it to restrict access to the catchment Area by Humans /sheep etc Certainly in earlier times Water catchment areas such as Thirlmere were "trespass areas" Hope someone can help But I really was impressed by the wall on a recent visit to the Mournes.
I was also pleased that the area by establishing the Granite was still remembering it's granite industry.

Niall - April '06
Can anyone verify the name of the engineer. In this article he is called Macassey but in other articles I have seen him called Mccassey.

Lynn - August 2004
I would like to know more about the agreement formed between the Belfast Water Commission and the Kilkeel Sanituary Authority and whether it still has effect today?
