Owen Bodhar - The Thatcher.

2-11'37
My father told me a story which he heard from his father about a thatcher of long ago. His name was Owen Bodhar. He was a great thatcher around this place and what he needed was scallops and reed.
He was thatching one time for a man who had a very old house and there were holes in the thatch and he fell through it and got killed and that was the end of Owen Bodhar.
