[antlr-interest] Augmenting AST with additional info

I have some information that needs to be augmented to an AST and I cannot figure out how to go about it.
It is maybe best to illustrate via an example:
Assuming I have a grammar where a method & its method body are declared and the AST as follows:
: return_type type_name OPEN_PARENS formal_parameter_list? CLOSE_PARENS LEFT_BRACE method_body RIGHT_BRACE
-> ^(METHOD_DECL return_type type_name formal_parameter_list? method_body)
In my AST, for METHOD_DECL (a token), I need to add some information that tells me the location where the method has ended . That is, the line number and column of RIGHT_BRACE.
Given that I eliminate RIGHT_BRACE from my AST, is there any mechanism to augment METHOD_DECL with (say) the line number and column number information for RIGHT_BRACE?
