Oysters by the ‘Tunns’

 

Sir, – Driving back from Greencastle to Shroove recently, I noticed a series of rectangular-shaped objects sitting on the “Tunns”, which is the local name for sandbanks which form and re-form timelessly in the shipping channel leading into the Foyle. I then read Frank McNally’s entertaining article on oyster-farming in the Foyle Estuary (May 26th).

Whether there is a connection or not, I do not know. Perhaps other readers could clarify. – Yours, etc,
