My grandparent’s house
Tower Lodge in Waterford was my maternal grandparent’s house. Some of my earliest memories are of this house, rather than my own, possible because it was so different, being an old building, but also because all the memories are happy one of family gatherings, summer holiday trips.
Before it was sold recently, I took the opportunity to visit one last time, and photograph it, so that I, and my family would have a record of this wonderful home. It was built by my grandfather, who was a multi-talented, capable craftsman working in Waterford Ironfounders when he wasn’t out with the Beagle Club, William (Billy) O’Brien.
