Save Our Thatched Cottage

We live in a thatched cottage in Co. Galway, Ireland, which is nearly 200 years old, along with three mad cats. It's a wonderful place to call home, but being the guardians of a piece of Irish History does come with certain responsibilities.

The thatch roof is desperately in need of repair to prevent the good old Irish rain from getting in, and keep a roof over the cats' heads.44741010_1578999963237693_r.jpeg Lack of funds, along with the difficulty securing a thatcher has left repairs wanting. We earnestly need to preserve this part of Ireland's heritage from disappearing, but we require funding to carry out repairs.

The recent catalogue of storms and rain has now pushed the thatch to  breaking point, and we are experiencing some leaks and we now are in danger of further damage.

We need to raise at least €10,000 to get repairs carried out and keep this little cottage going for at least another century.

Thanks for listening!44741010_1578999291270394_r.jpeg
