Roving Reporter - Cappagh Fairy Rath

A tongue-in-cheek report from James Boyce on the fate of a rath in Cappagh, County Tyrone, which is threatened with removal to make way for a new road.

A rath is an enclosure of roughly circular form made with a strong earth wall, originally serving as a fort and place of residence.

Recorded circa 1960.
