1879 – Blayney Almshouses, Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan


When the 12th Lord Blayney died in 1874, his will provided money for the setting up of the Blayney Almshouses. Built of red brick with terracotta trim, the building was originally made up of twenty small apartments with bed-sitter and a small scullery. A 2004 renovation converted it to 10 units. In the grounds are a lodge and a memorial in memory of Cadwallader Davis Blayney, the 12th and last Lord Blayney.
