The towns of Éire are freshly painted for Patrick’s Day
As the Ardaghy Pipe Band strikes up a march in Donegal
Our half-door is open to allow spring warmth inside
Although the floor looks puzzled, with these sections near the doorways having been badly smashed in the building’s agricultural past
Some journey! (and that’s only to speak of what happened since we lifted the floor)
A few months have passed since these flags were bedded into a Limecrete subfloor
Now pointed and tamped using a fine grade sand in the Lime mix for a smooth finish – it pulls the floor together
Who would’ve thought a smashed old floor could turn out this handsome?
Finished by a winsome door-step, which the trusty Bernard builds.
