house close to Lough Neagh, in County Armagh, Northern Ireland.
The gable indicates a mud built house. While there is some archaeological
evidence for the use of earth walls in houses in early Christian times,
it is not until about 1700 that mud-walled houses are recorded in
County Armagh. Gailey (1984 p.55) says "Many mud-walled houses
remain occupied today, especially in County Armagh, their real nature
successfully concealed behind external rendering and a veneer of modernity"
