Love and a Cottage

On the edge of a country road in County Cork, this cottage testifies to centuries of living for the greater part of the Irish population. Its simple allure lies in the uneven slope of the thatched roof, the use of colour inside the window surrounds, the retention of the old double door, the whitewashed walls: all these factors combine to make the building as irresistibly photogenic as any grand country house.

    A perfect example of this once ubiquitous style (your ‘double door’ is colloquially a ‘half-door’). Nice work.
