There’s Something About an Irish Cottage

They’re cold and damp. However, when filled with family and friends an old Irish cottage becomes one of the warmest places on Earth. Here’s a little scrapbook of few of the more derelict cottages I’ve spotted in my travels…

  1. The best thing about an Irish cottage, is that it is in Ireland!

  2. Irish cottages have such a tremendous feeling of family, friends and love–a feeling of unity, I guess. Just gazing at the pictures you can almost hear the music and laughter and feel the love and sense of community.

  3. Irish Cottages where big Families were reared, people were welcomed inside, songs were sung, there was music dancing.Lots of chat tea was always a must. The rosary was always said & when someone visited they just knelt down & joined in
