These pens have been crafted locally by wood turner Brendan Bannonwho is based in the Butternarket, Enniskillen.
The wood is from anumber of Yew trees which had to be felled in July 2007 in order to carryout work to widen the front avenue leading up to the school.
These samples have been produced to let you see the styles/sizesbefore ordering As you can see even from the Three samples here the grain and colour can vary significantly with the darker colours coming from the centre of the tree and the lighter colour nearer the bark
