HEAD­FORT HOUSE/ Kells, Ire­land

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - QUESTIONS & ANSWERS -

I re­cently vis­ited Head­fort House in Kells, Ire­land, where my grand­mother worked in ser­vice around 1901 and where she met my grand­fa­ther, work­ing there as a groom. The house is now a board­ing school but I was as­sured that the long stone cor­ri­dor in the ser­vants’ area, which has sev­eral metal rings em­bed­ded in it spaced out along the floor, was there in 1900. No one could tell me what the rings were used for. Does any­one know their pur­pose? Janet Gore, by email

Can you ex­plain the metal rings in Janet Gore’s pho­to­graph of Head­fort House?
