How About a House Built in the 1600's!

Last week we were invited to join our very good friends, Jeff & Caroline Hay, at another friend's 400 year old house in Wexford - about a 4 hour drive from Kinsale. Look at that THATCHED ROOF! Believe it or not, this type of roof is still installed brand new! They work really well and last a long time - increased fire potential is the only drawback!
