Irish Home Essentials


Séamus Ó Conaill examines the artifacts of an Irish home, from ashtrays on back windowsill to the potpourri gathering dust in the ‘good room’. The list includes many newer objects that make our 21st-century homes more Irish as ever! 

What makes an Irish home? Is it the neatly folded wrapping paper saved for another Christmas? Or the pressure cooker that you can’t throw out but you haven’t used since 1987?
