Sperrin Mountains, Strabane, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland
This little farm cottage is only a few miles from my home. I always like to visit it from time to time especially during last minute vibrant sunsets. Whilst capturing this image I heard from a local farmer that this little house was actually inhabited by a large family up until the late 1960’s
It just goes to show that many parts of Ireland didn’t jump onto the “modernism train” quite as fast as the rest of the western world. Its possible that they could not afford to modernise & build larger more elaborate homes but I personally like to believe if something works why change it? They had the right idea to a certain degree. I know times were more harsh and many families grew with nothing but each other but I bet that overall they were just as happy back then as we are now….
