Well done to all in Woodford for reintroducing a lost craft of making bloomery iron using bog ore and charcoal, it's the first time in Ireland in almost 250 years.Making history also was Monica Hynes, of the East Galway Family History Society who became the first Irish female smelter in a few centuries at least!

Also well done to Paul Rondelez, Mattie O'Malley, Kevin Keary, Declan Walsh and Brian Keary, Chairperson, East Galway Family History Society for their excellent interviews.
