Traditional Irish Cottages 4

  1. 1. 2360 Years In The Making.<br />Traditional Irish Cottages<br />
  2. 2. The Celts arrived in Ireland by 350 B.C (some say earlier) and they thrive there to this day. A claim might be made that the Celtic Irish are among the world&apos;s oldest nationality groups. <br />Despite periods when foreigners tried in vain to wrestle control of the culture, the Celtic Irish have been a homogeneous people occupying one area for over 2,300 years.<br />Still, archeological evidence tells us that there were indigenous people in Ireland before the Celts, perhaps going back to 6000 B.C.<br />The First Celts <br />
  3. 3. Irish Cottages have dated back to when the first Celts came over to Ireland. This dates back to 350 B.C. (some say later).<br />Strange as it seems, when the mud walls were dried and given several coats of whitewash, and when the thatched roof was allowed to overhang the walls, they remained dry and lasted for many decades.<br />How Old Irish Cottages Are.<br />
  4. 4. Whenever you hare The word Irish Cottages, your mind quickly to a open pasture with a mud house, and a flock of sheep grazeing beside it.<br />Hard for many to believe, cottages that are made today can be just as beautiful, and have contemporary features.<br />Today&apos;s cottages are complete with Fitted kitchen <br />Fully equipped bathroom w.c. / wash hand basin / bath <br />External windows and doors. <br />Laminate timber flooring throughout <br />Traditional slate roof <br />Gas Boiler <br />Fully plumbed <br />Fully wired and certified <br />60 min. fire rating, fitted with smoke detector and emergency lighting <br />Built-in storage <br />How They are Constructed?<br />

  6. 6. Pat mores Cottages is 110 years old and still in use to this day.<br />Patrick Duffy, known as Pat Mor, was born in Finny in 1875, and being a stone mason by trade, built this cottage in the late 1800´s. He lived here with his wife Catherene nee Joyce from Glenbeg, and they reared 8 sons in this small 3 roomed cottage. The family names were Jimmy, Martin, Patrick, Fr.Willie, Fr.Peter, Michel, Tommy and Marcus. As well as earning a living as a stone mason, he was also a farmer.<br />One of the Oldest Cottages<br />
