A Roscommon schoolboy who was fed up doing homework and decided to go for a swim, ended up discovering a 4,000 year old boat.

 

12 year old Cathal McDonagh was wading in the water behind his house when he found what archaeologists believe is a primitive canoe.

 

The Herald reports a team of experts will travel from Dublin this week to examine the find.
