Description

Entrance gateway, erected c.1880, to Cahermorris House. Round-plan piers of hammer-finished ashlar limestone, with tooled square-edged string course and tooled conical caps, with recent decorative metal gates, flanked by coursed random rubble stone walls with 'Buck and Doe' rubble coping.

Appraisal

This gateway is situated in a prominent location on a corner of a crossroads. The attractive cylindrical form with conical caps adds interest to the roadscape along the boundary wall of Cahermorris House.
