This letterbox has come to rest in peace far from its namesake's home in Cork. Located now somewhere in SE Wisconsin, this box is placed in a small, but saintly area in the county of "yellow earth." To find this buried treasure you must find out who, born about 560, founded a famous monastery in his Celtic homeland, but chose to live out his final years as a hermit in Gougane Barra. (Hint: Once this name has been secured you must lose the second r). It will not be necessary to travel to Rome to complete your final pilgrimage, however. Instead travel near the small community known as Wisconsin’s crossroads. Once you’ve reached this sacred ground, ascend the 12 stone steps, walk north past William and Rose, follow the fence to the four trunked birch and claim your heavenly reward…
