Reply To: Castle’s castle in Cootehill……………
jas, you’re thinking of Bellamont Forest which is a lovely house, very nicely proportioned and a magnificent site.
Annaglee is almopst completely gone and is described by Bence-Jones as:
A distinguished mid-c18 red-brick house attributed to Richard Castle. 2 storeys over basement, curved bow in centre of front with 1 bay on either side of it; 3 sided bow in centre of rear elevation. Bow-fronted hall with apse at inner end; staircase in inner hall, extending into bow at rear. In 1814 the residence of Michael Murphy. Now almost completely distroyed.
I have photographs of neither house.
