Building our Round Tower May 2012
To finish off our Intergenerational Garden we needed a centre piece – something original and interesting. Past pupil from the Old School, Pat Corrigan, suggested a scaled model of Dromiskin’s Round Tower. Soon the ball was rolling and, with local stonemason Seamus Mc Ardle as architect in chief, the children of St. Peter’s provided the raw materials – lots and lots of stones! Seamus selected his apprentices, calculations of scale were made and levels were taken. Bit by bit, slowly and surely the tower rose from the ground. In a week, Seamus and his workers had made their masterpiece standing proudly in the shadow of the Old School and surrounded by beautiful flowers and shrubs. Enjoy the pictures of our builders at work and please visit if you get a chance.
