Thatched roof artistry

The ancient art of thatching is alive and well in Ireland, as well as in the UK. This Irish house has been re-roofed quite recently. Beside it, an outbuilding sports matching thatch.

Done properly, such roofs are very practical and can last a long time.

On this side of the Atlantic, Virginia-based Colin McGhee, who decided to be a thatcher when he was seven, gets lots of business in the U.S. and Canada.
