Due to a hockey match we all went to Raphoe today. Needless to say I wasn't the one playing, just spectating.
I took the chance to have a look around the town when I was up there, as my nanny was born there. Raphoe is a plantation town in County Donegal, just over the border. My nanny lived in the gate lodge to the "big house" or the castle, where her father was a land steward. Eleven of them lived in this house!
I took some photos .....

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I'll be working on my City and Guild felt piece, photos to follow, Ali.
