Nice shot, MB. How long has the house been in ruins? You didn’t contribute to that, did you? 🙂 janet LikeLike Reply

Interestingly Miss J (MB’s comments are always interesting says you), this house and many more throughout the length & breadth of Ireland fell into disrepair following the Irish War of Independence, with the confiscation of the big estates and the distribution of the lands to the native Irish. (Normally) British family owned, the owners returned to the home country and the houses were neglected. Also, a major factor was a house tax in 1950s Ireland. Many farmers, on whose lands the old houses lay unoccupied, removed the roofs to avoid having to pay the tax. Crokers is one such victim of that particular episode as far as I am aware. You can read a little more about it here – http://www.via-antiqua.com/?p=1021.
Thank you for the ongoing weekly education MB.
Don’t mention J.
