Artist Blacksmith Supreme J.J. Bohan Works on LTV2 Sign Superbly Designed by John Cashman at Millstreet Country Park

J.J. Bohan, Artist Blacksmith supreme working on the LTV2 sign in Millstreet Country Park this morning (27th Oct.) having been designed by John Cashman.   Seán Murphy and I recorded the work in progress.   The completed iron sign which will take many, many hours to make will become a permanent fixture in our LTV2 Studio.   If we added the Millstreet name to the sign it would indeed take much longer to complete.   We are truly grateful to both J.J. who comes from near Schull in West Cork and to John for so generously fulfilling a promise made during the superb Blacksmith Festival at MCP on the May Bank Holiday 2012.   (S.R.)
