                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1986

                      About the owner: Alyson and Sean: We have spent the last 23 years restoring this place! So its been a labour of love...... The stone built house was built in 1872 for the Parish Priest on 4 acres;so in early days - it was self sufficient. We had sheep but they kept running the moment we have 2 quiet donkeys! It has commanding views over village and undulating rural countryside. We are at stage where our 4 children have flown the nest;but come back to roost at every opportunity! We try to be self sufficient- we have garden,keep bees,make wine and beer and get milk from local farmer, get our turf from local bog. There is not much else we need!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Quiet,rural,unspoilt place. Undulating countryside; there is a bronze age ringfort on the hill beside us;in our field we found remains of 'Follach Fiadh' or 'Deer Hole' - this was a cooking place during bronze era. Local friendly people. There is a sense of place here.
