Basic Thatching nr.Killybegs, County Donegal

This property is for sale in Killybegs, County Donegal, and shows a basic level of thatching with a flat pitched ridge and so has plastic under the thatch to help keep water out.  The plastic around the chimney is also fitted in an attempt to make the join between the chimney and the thatch watertight and the piece of wood hung at the eaves is put in place to weigh down the thatch at the edge of the roof which may blow up in strong winds.
