Description

Pair of dressed limestone gate piers with ball finials, erected c.1800, support decorative cast-iron double gates. Piers are flanked by original cast-iron single gates. Sweeping walls terminating by a second pair of limestone piers.

Appraisal

These are the original eighteenth-century gates to Betaghstown House but as that estate has been divided into smaller holdings, it is now the entrance into another private house. The gates and post box in the adjoining wall however contribute to the setting and context of Betaghstown House.
