Built in 1896, when the Irish regained their rights to their culture, religion and education. St. Louis nuns would come from Ramsgrange (3.5km) by donkey & cart. Teachers, boys, and girls had their own entrances and toilets. Boys were upstairs and girls downstairs. Later it was mixed (according to those in the village who went to school there) See if you can find the ink stains on the wood floor! Be sure to look at the great old photos of the Schoolhouse & Ballyhack on the walls of the pub.
Please remember it is an old house so has characteristics associated with it.
If something gets broken, please mention it so I know to repair it or replace it.
If your group has 2 cars, only park one in front of the next door neighbour's house. 8-)
I like travelling and experiencing other cultures and meeting new interesting people.
I have lived in Ireland for 18 years but am originally from Texas, where I was a newspaper editor.
We are a family of 5 and live on a farm growing things ranging from sheep & cattle to foliage, rapeseed and trees.
We try to be as environmentally responsible as practically possible and have a wind turbine, electric car, thermal solar panels and several PV panels (that we hope to have up soon, right hubby?)
