Frank Sweeney & Co. are pleased to offer for sale this two bed house at Moyode Demesne, Athenry, Co. Galway. The house comes with the walled gardens and stableyard of the former Moyode Castle. This site is steeped in history. The restored Moyode Demesne tower house (not part of this property) is visible from this property. This property may qualify for the vacant property grant. It could be restored to a one bed property or planning could be applied to replace with a more substantial house. The property is accessed via a long avenue under two ornate arched gateways. The second archway leads into the courtyard. The residential property to one end of the courtyard which could be replaced stpp. From the courtyard there is a gateway into the walled gardens, the walls of which are in very good condition. The estate at Moyode was energetically developed by Burton Persse in the early decades of the 19th century and he is commemorated by an inscription on the arched entranceway to the stableyard, dated 1822. A century later, during the Easter Rising of 1916, the house was garrisoned by 700 volunteers under the command of Liam Mellows. The tower house built by the Dolfin de Burgos was restored in recent years by the American author and historian James Charles Roy but Burton Persse house was razed by Republican activists during the War of Independence and only a ruined shell survives. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire this historical site to develop a residential property and retain the walled gardens with their truly impressive stone walls and the ornamental stone entrance gateways.
