Display for medieval brooch found in fire

An early medieval brooch found in the remnants of a turf fire in a north Kerry range earlier this year, went on permanent display at the Kerry County Museum in Tralee last night.

The Martara brooch, was found in the grate of the range of Sheila and Pat Joe Edgeworth of Martara, Ballylongford last February.

It was found in machine-cut turf in Mr Edgworth’s bog nearby at Tullahennell, one of the vast boglands of north Kerry in the summer of 2009.
