The new links between Knock and Girona (Barcelona), Hahn (Frankfurt), Bergamo (Milan) and Beauvais (Paris) will bring to 14 the number of Ryanair routes flying to and from Ireland West Airport.
Ryanair adding to their extensive services into Ireland from March 2012.
It will now be possible to fly from the above departure points directly in to Knock Airport. Knock is approx 60 mins. drive to Cuach Cottage.
Interesting 'Cuach Cottage': Constructed from local stone using local skills and dry bedding technique. Some internal walls are 3 ft. wide whilst others are 2 ft.
It has a conventional pitched slated roof which is now highly insulated.
To the rear, their remains the shell of a stone constructed sheep's pen. Livestock would have been housed close to the dwelling in bygone days.
The fireplace is 'inglenook' type, however, this has been converted to suit a woodburning stove. In days gone by all family meals were cooked over this burning fireplace.
Local harvested turf was the common source of fuel . The fire would sit directly on the floor in traditional manner using all the skills necessary to maintain it, lighting 24 hours per day. Most homesteads had their own plot of bogland. Plots till exist to this day.
We have installed a hand crafted entrance door, 1/2 by 1/2 last year made by a local craftsman, thanks Pat.
Interior fixtures, some from Count De Vesci's estate in Laois are present in 'Cuach Cottage'
