I counted three storeys over a basement. The episcopal coat-of-arms emblazons the apex of the entrance front.
I wonder when the Church of Ireland sold it.
Thereafter I motored into the town of Cavan, County Cavan, for a stroll.
It might once have been in a more prominent position, though it's fairly discreet in its present location.
THE village of Cootehill has a wide Main Street which leads ultimately to the handsome little parish church.
The church is on the edge of Bellamont Forest. Indeed, Bellamont's main entrance is a few yards beyond the church.
The mansion house is private, though the woods are accessible for walkers. There are deer in the forest.
