Irish country houses
15th C. – Castle Matrix, Rathkeale, Co. Limerick
1800s – Clonshavoy House, Co. Limerick
The Irish Tourist Association surveyor writes in 1944 that the house was interesting as it was the remains of a very old Elizabethan house. He says that more than half the house was pulled down as it was unsafe “and the present eastern wing is a reconstruction”. Photograph from the Irish Tourist Association Survey 1943-44.
