Margaret Gallagher, An Update

Margaret Gallagher and her Cottage

Last week we brought you the video of Margaret Gallagher who lives in a 280+year old thatched roof cottage in Belcoo, County Fermanagh. Margaret turned 78 on January 26th, she still walks down through the field to fetch fresh spring water and stokes the fire each day to cook, keep warm, and keep a roof over her head. 

The video from the Irish Times is from 2019 as Margaret gives a brief update about her life at the cottage.

    My grandfather was a Gallagher from Derry. My grandmother was Margaret Cleary. They married in Donegal. You are a true inspiration of how simple and pure Irish life was. Someday hopefully I can pass by and see your beautiful piece of history.
