Campaign to save 3,000-years-old oak road finally brings results


After a dozen years of campaigning by Westmeath Topic and by local historians to preserve a large and unique 3,000-years- old Bronze Age timber road at Mayne Bog outside Coole – one of the most important oak roads of its type in Europe – it has finally borne fruit, it appears. And what now remains of the ancient road is to be protected and preserved, under a High Court agreement.
