Roundtower NHL 3.5 White and Wexford Sand on this project in Cork, Ireland. Harling or wet dash is the most commonly applied external finish to be found on vernacular architecture in Ireland. The harling material is a combination of aggregates and lime, mixed into a slurry consistency and applied in a fluid state. Historically the harling was applied directly onto the masonry walls which had previously been evened out by pointing the wall flush and filling small holes with stone pinnings and mortar. Towards the end of the nineteenth century it became commonplace to apply one or two towelled undercoats to flatten the background before casting on the lime harling.
