Note
In the West, the thatch was usually roped down. In the central part of the country scollops (sally rods bent in the form of a hairpin) were used to secure the thatch. In the east the thatch was usually sewn down and sometimes this fastening was also used in addition to scollops. The distribution map was drawn by Caoimhín Ó Danachair as a result of information acquired from a questionnaire on thatching methods which was circulated to questionnaire correspondents in 1945.
