I like to write a few articles in my free time. Some have been published and some have not. Most of the articles are Ireland related and generally of a historical or cultural nature.
I may be contacted through the email on this site.

Lime Kiln, Newbridge, County Dublin.
In decades gone by, lime was obtained from limestone which was heated in such kilns. the lime was used to make whitewash which was painted onto cottages and walls at least once a year. This example is at Newbridge near Donabate in North county Dublin.
