Appraisal

This house is an interesting example of the vernacular building tradition in Ireland. The single storey form with attic accommodation, the small windows, and use of corrugated roofing materials replacing original thatch are typical vernacular features. The simple form of this house is enhanced by the survival of many original features and materials.
