The track remains closed to vehicles and access. It is private, as is Seaport quay, which is now barred by means of a wooden gate.
I used to enjoy a stroll down to the quay. Never mind.
Later I motored in the two-seater, with its roof firmly down, in a southerly direction. I sought Clare Park, former seat of the McEldowneys.
I found what's left of it, a wasteland with flat ground and some rubble here and there.
There is no sign of Clare House at all. A memorial remains, though, within its own railings to a member of the family, who suffered a tragic accident whilst on his horse at the cliff.
