This house on the North Commons is now gone. It is a reminder to all of us of our roots in the past where beauty & tranquillity often shared space with hardship & toil. This cottage like so many others in Ireland has a familiar story to tell. It was the home of Sarah Laracy born in 1883 the youngest of 7 children, 6 of whom immigrated to America.
