The Carlow Fence


Author : Michael J. Conry
Description : This simple Quaker-style granite fence is a unique feature of the Carlow landscape - found nowhere else in the world. It was erected mainly as a decorative fence around gardens and between fields. In addition to describing the method of cleaving the long stone lintels and the construction of the single and two-tiered fences, the book also describes in some detail the granite Slab fence or Scotch fence, granite post fences and the drystone walls found in Co. Carlow.
