Appraisal

One of the most impressive country house gates in Ireland now leading to site of demolished house. The monumental doric archways, circa 1800, surmounted by plinth and Coade stone lion require a conservation plan to secure the structure and sculptures to prevent further deterioration.

The cast Coade stone lion has had conservation works carried out and has been reinstated.
