Finn Thatching is operated by Ronan Finn. Ronan is a qualified Thatcher with a Construction background in Carpentry and Roofing. Ronan’s interest in this age old craft started in 1997 when he worked as an apprentice for a Dutch Thatcher for 6 months.  When the project finished Ronan moved into Carpentry where he worked for 10 years as a Roofer, building and covering roofs.

Ronan’s Qualifications

In 2008 Ronan secured a place on a FAS Thatcher Traineeship which provided training in practical, theoretical and technical knowledge in Traditional Reed and Straw Thatching. The course covered new builds and recoating in both reed and straw.

In 2009, Ronan started to work on a three day block release with a Thatcher in the Galway area and after his training with FAS Ronan continued to served his time with the same Thatcher working on roofs in County Galway and on various projects such as Bridget’s Gardens and Moran’s of the Weir.

Ronan has a strong understanding of traditional thatching methods and he enjoys the hands-on aspect of thatching a roof and the satisfaction that this brings.
