“I was on a shoot in rural Ireland recently and a local told me about an old house once owned by a librarian named ‘Birdie’Higgins. Birdie moved out of this house 14 years ago and went to live in a retirement home. Time almost seems to have stood still since her leaving and me arriving. She died 3 years ago at the age of 94.”
