Peter & Declan go Yew hunting

Two of our Northern Ireland verifiers have been to visit the legendary Lissan Yew..

Two of our verifiers in Northern Ireland have been out with their video camera to record a great example of an old Yew tree, The Lissan Yew in County Tyrone.

Peter Archdale and Declan Devlin went to check out the tree in the grounds of Lissan House near Cookstown and their measurements show how much of a monster it is. The diameter of the central trunk is five metres across and there are 12 separate trunks rising from the central bole. To get an idea of the scale of this monster check out their video on Youtube
