Peter Morgan’s Cottage is a Cross Community venue in the heart of Finnis, County Down. It hosts a wide variety of events and classes and is available for hire. Facilities include off-road parking, a green area, accessible toilets and kitchen facilities.
The cottage was built by Massford Project Association, a local voluntary group, formed to prevent the demise of the old cottage which was rebuilt in the original style on the same site. It is named after Peter Morgan the last resident and sexton of St Michael’s Parish Church which overlooks the site.
The vision for the cottage is to provide an amenity that welcomes, and is available to, the whole community.
The mural on the gable wall represents the tradition of Cairn/Blaeberry Sunday and the mountain, Blaeberries and the River Lagan are represented. The inscription is a quote from a local poet, Pat King. Blaeberry Sunday is traditionally the first Sunday in August when people walk to the top of neighbouring Slieve Croob. For many years now a morning walk has been organised from the cottage and has proved very popular.
