Teach Mhici Mhic Gabhann

MAGHERAROARTY

Teach Mhicí Mhic Gabhann in the townland of Doire Chonaire is the homestead of Micí Mac Gabhann (1865-1948). D’fhág Micí Mac Gabhann an baile le cúpla punta a shaothrú. He was a local man who spent time as a seasonal labourer in ‘The Laggan’ and Scotland before going to the United States. His life story was recorded by Seán Ó hEocaidh (1913-2002) of the Irish Folklore Commission as ‘Rotha Mór antSaoil’/’The Hard Road to Klondike’. The dwelling is a fine example of the vernacular architecture of west Donegal with its thatched roof, slate room addition and cailleach (bed outshot).
