I have to admit I have had a lifelong interest in architectural heritage. In fact, I brought out a book on Irish clay houses, which I intended as a campaigning book to save the existing stock of clay houses and to promote clay as a building material. I am happy to say the book, Ireland’s Earthen Houses, was effective. I am fascinated with this house. It is the very picture of traditional hearth and home, sturdy, well maintained and with an essential windbreak. I don’t know but I think this style of house dates from the 1930s and was built with the support of the local authority. If anyone know more about this, I would be very interested to learn more.
