thanks to Claudia for this great postcard.
on the postcard it’s written:
Greeting from Ireland
Covering a house with a roof of straw, reeds or heather is a tradition that has existed in Ireland for 9,000 years. During that time it has evolved into an art form that is appreciated by all, and the Irish thatched cottage has become one of the features of our heritage that is most photographed and most loved.
