You might wonder what an odd name 'The Ragg' is. Well, the area is steeped in history and during the civil war, there were a number of 'safe houses' in the area. The men 'on the run' would help the farmers in the fields and when they were in danger of being caught, the local women would put a 'rag' out the top window of the houses, to warn the men to get away fast. Over the years, an extra 'g' was added on! There are a number of historical plaques in the area commemorating its history.
Also, just where the building stands, there was once a 'poitin' maker and whenever the brew was ready to drink, a rag would be put out the attic window!
Do call to visit The Ragg, you will not be disappointed!
