More than anything a view of a white-wash thatched cottage in its natural original location will invoke images of smoked filled kitchens with open-hearth turf fires and storytellers weaving fables on a cold winter evening, later in the night with the children tucked away, the poteen was passed around and the adults danced to the fiddler players. ( and the children still awake with the hullabaloo). For better or for worse, very few thatched mountain cottages exist, but we still have the same type of craic in our modern homes.
