Turnip House Clonachullion

Our old house on the Trassey Road has featured in the BBC TV series Nick Nickleby, aired this week. The house, now in the loving care of another family, looks great, and it is good to see it fulfilling it's role as family home and National Monument.

25 years ago, in 1987, this house was for sale, advertised as a building site, due for demolition. We saw it for what it was - a treasure!

It's really good to look back and see what we've done, and we're really enthusiastic about the next one!

just a tin roofed barn when we found it, now it's incorporated into the house - wonderful!
