The ancestral home in Donegal is up for sale, sadly I do not have 1.95 million Euro to spare

It is a pity, for Edenmoor in Co. Donegal is a fine place and has been restored well since my late father and I visited it back in the mid eighties. That was before the Good Friday agreement and as dad and I drove through the border counties from Belfast there was more than one inappropriate joke made about IRA men lurking in the shadows around the next corner.

It was Zacchaeus Cochrane, after whom I get my third name, who first moved from Scotland to Donegal in the 1600s and if I had a spare 1.95 million Euro I’d be buying back the old place like a shot. Sadly I do not and so must just admire it from afar.
