Mcinerney cottage in County Clare

Michael McINERNEY and his wife, Susan (nee KELLY) lived there whole lives in this two room cottage. They were married in 1902

 

They had 12 children in all - 3 died when they were small, 3 left for England, 3 went to the USA and 3 stayed in Ireland.

 

The cottage was not connected to electricity until the 1970s so light was from oil lamps, cooking was in a cauldron on the hearth.. Even now, to get fresh water,you need to take a bucket to a nearby spring, and pots under the bed provided the nearest thing to a toilet.
