Demolition crew in to Teach project

No stopping them now! It took a long time to get in, but the crew of volunteers behind the Teach na nDaoine project are already raising dust and knocking walls, writes Brian Byrne.

After an initial meeting to discuss plans last night, they were in full tilt today. "There are a lot of people interested in helping with this, so we needed to get going straight away," says Albert Keenan, pictured above after his morning's toil with a sledge-hammer.

Another prime mover for the Teach, John Brady, was also on duty this morning, but had gone in search of materials when the Diary got up there to record progress. We'll be keeping all our readers up to date as it goes on.
