Margaret Gallagher has lived in an off-grid cottage near the Irish border in County Fermanagh since 1942.

Visitors often expect to find her "sitting in the corner wearing a long black dress and a white apron" but Margaret, 77, refuses to be stereotyped.

Watch Margaret explain how her family missed the opportunity to update their home in the 1950s - and why she never caught up with the modern world.
