Reply To: Irish Building of the Millenium
No I wouldn’t. These stone houses or cells were used all over the country and are small, ill-lit accomodation of a most rudimentary sort – probably providing the exemplar for the later stone-roofed churches around the 10-12th. cents. Such cells have disappeared on the mainland – see their ruins devotionally preserved on Lough Derg, for example.
While Irish people seem to talk a lot about the past, few seem to understand it, as this discussion amply proves, eh -Editor?
