Subject: Braemor park and clean the stone

The RCB has an online web site but they do not supply names of authentic
And yes you can clean a headstone Providing it is done with gentle care
shame you didnt do it by the sound of things
Tell me about the shame of the headstones in Ireland or indeed anywhere, I
hate the thought that they are being vandalised, left to the ruination of
briars, elders, and whatever else grows rampart in the graveyard....It's a
battle that I have taken on with a certain county council in Ireland and I
did win one cleanup of a graveyard now I begin on a second one...........
Out heritage is being lost by the fact that no one accepts responsibility
for the care of the stones ( I am talking old stones of course) I realise
the later ones ( or at least some of them are looked after)
But the county council pass it on and the heritage centers shovel it to one
side its a real no win situation and we as the ancetors are the losers
Ireland alone has one of its major antiquities being lost because no one
cares at the county council of each county.
Sorry to ramble on it is a state of affairs close to my heart
