The Art of Thatching in Kilmore Quay.

In the fishing village of Kilmore Quay, Co. Wexford you’ll find the most beautiful collection of traditionally thatched cottages.

I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of how this village maintains its crowning glory as local thatcher, Vinny, set to work on replacing a thatch ridge ahead of the Kilmore Quay Seafood Festival. 

There is a Go Fund Me campaign set up to fund a documentary on thatching in the area, click here for details.
