Donegal DIY inspiration Christina Mc Geady features on a new episode of TG4’s Déan Tú Féin É, showcasing her stunning riverside cottage project.

Christina and her husband Mark recently renovated the quaint Graciejohns cottage, right next door to Teach Phaidí Óig. The cottage was originally built in famine times in the 1840s and has been carefully restored into a family-friendly getaway.
