Master Thatcher: Hugh O’Neill

Hugh O’Neill, a Master Thatcher, is a crucial social bridge in terms of keeping the age old tradition of thatching alive in Ireland. I was fortunate to meet him while he was thatching the Sweep Bar in Kilmeaden,  Co. Waterford.  This is a  man with wealth of knowledge and experience in relation to thatching.  His wonderful insights are presented in Section One of my writing on Social Bridges.
