Christmas Open House

This weekend i visited DJ Murphys open christmas house in Ovens Co Cork.
Each year he opens his home in aid of charity, this year it was Marymount Hospice and Enable Ireland.
His home has a history to it, being the birthplace of one, Patrick Ronayne Cleburne who rose to high rank in the american confederate army, a plaque is erected in his honour by the front door.
You can read it by clicking on the photo to enlarge!
His home is beautifully furnished and exudes a lovely warm atmosphere with fires lighting and candles everywhere just what anyone would like at christmas time.
The flower arrangements are undertaken by local florists and are stunning each room looking different and with a different colour scheme.
Enjoy the photos!
