I think I need to make this easier for people. Perhaps I will put a Lady of the Swamp link on my blog front page.
The house where Margaret Clement (there is a Clement in my antecedents but I don't think that there is a connection) lived, Tullaree, was open for inspection around a week ago. No, not by real estate agents but for a public viewing as a fund raiser for a local charity.
A very kind lass commented on an old blog post. Here is what she said.
We went to the open day at Tullaree 2/5/09 - It was a once only open day to raise money for the local Christian Day, boy what a day was run so smoothly, 2 very long lines of around 2 hour wait to go through the house, which was out of the world, having read the book you could just see Margaret and Jeanie (room where she dies etc) I felt I had been there before, a friends mother used to visit Margaret twice weekly for afternoon tea with her.
The author Richard Shears was there signing books, which I have both and photo with him.
Any one who didn't go missed a great day of history. Everyone was so patient and all talking about their thoughts and a good day had by all.
The older book, Lady of the Swamp or the newer one Swamp are great reads and some nice local history.
