Do you know what they use to thatch the cottage with – is it heather?
I think it is either water reed or dried straw!! Maybe someone can confirm that one 🙂
I am helping my friend Ken Quirk research his family tree who I am meeting for our regular pint in Our local
the Plough & Horses in Farnborough,Hampshire.He is from the uk but ancestors
are from Cregneash area
His gt grandfather William Aemilius Quirk was baptised in Cregneath 1888
son of William henry Quirk who married Margaret eliz Gill(Gale) in liverpool
Is there any connection with Quirks croft which is a nice picture.?
Ive downloaded the picture to give to him.
They were fishermen/seafairers.
If your friends folk were from Cregneash , this would have been a family home, the village is preserved as an open Air Museum , try and get a copy of the film Waking Ned Devine a great film
All set in the village..
See i museum Isle of Man for more info
