Thursday Doors – Redhills

We’re in the beautiful village of Redhills, County Cavan for this week’s Thursday Doors. It was the setting of two movies, The Playboys back in 1992 and The Run of the Country in 1995 .

I’ll start off with some doors, as this is what I initially came here to photograph. This terrace is typical of the houses around the village. I think they were labourers’ cottages but I’m not sure if these two are lived in anymore.

I couldn’t get a shot of the doors to this gate lodge as it was on private property. However, the walls to this estate are gorgeous and in great condition.

I’m not sure if the old bicycle in the background is a feature but the brightly painted plow definitely is. It was also lovely to find this old water pump still working.

This piece of bog wood is also an interesting feature and there was a notice giving some information about it.

You might be wondering if there are any more doors to be seen in this week’s post. There is, but not the type humans might use. I found a bug hotel in Redhills.

Here’s the info, just in case you’d like to build one.

Thanks for stopping by and please forgive the lack of doors in this week’s post. I’m going to make up for that next week when I take you on a tour of a nearby workhouse with a fascinating history. Meanwhile, Norm has some very interesting Thursday Doors waiting for you over on his blog.

    This is all wonderful. I’ve never heard of either of those movies, but I like this place. The flowers are pretty and the bug hotel is something new to me. How clever, albeit odd looking.

    What a wonderful area, Jean. Great photos! I love the bug hotel. I am hoping to build a small version for independent bees.

    Probably don’t know these movies (always forget the titles somehow!). Love that stone fence in your first image – gorgeous! The bug hotel is interesting, I can imagine who love plants, would like to build one. I do plants, but my blood attract mosquitoes and other bugs, so I think I’ll leave this eco project to others:)

    That’s a neat place. I really like the curved wall with the bright flowers, so pretty.
