Liberty Blue Estate Agents are delighted to bring this charming cottage to the market. This quaint cottage on the Brookside sits at the top of one of the most historic and scenic parts of Passage East. The Brookside was the ancient "thoroughfare" from where locals or invaders would pass up and down on their way to Waterford city. It was the only way into the village! It was on this old road that Strongbow marched his 200 Knights and 1,000 foot soldiers as part of the Norman invasion in 1171. Cromwell's armies - and Cromwell himself - also passed by what is now the front wall of the cottage during his "excursions" to Ireland and in particular Waterford city. British companies billeted on the Brookside during the 1798 rebellion and the legendary "Croppy Boy" passed up the road on his way to nearby Geneva Barrack, a one time planned utopian colony turned into a notorious prison. The beautiful hills around the cottage are happy stomping grounds for the herd of wild, protected goats which bring another beautiful sense of wildness to the surroundings. The goats have been in the village for centuries after having being brought their by a passing ship. And 100 years ago the area around the cottage was used by the famous Cockle Women of Passage for cleaning their catch and preparing them for sale. Cockle shells still litter the pathways and grass verges in the vicinity. The amazing history of Passage mixes perfectly with the location of a welcoming, friendly neighbourhood where it's only 40 steps to the renowned public house ("Furlong's New Geneva") and 50 steps to the lovely beach. This traditional cottage is in walk in condition. Roof windows ensure the property is light filled. Heating is by a solid fuel stove and electric wall heaters. Just a short stroll to pubs, cafes, shop and ferry in Passage East. Accommodation consist of; Open plan living, kitchen and dining space Double bedroom Bathroom
