Built c.1874 Castlemore estate belonged to the Eustace family, later Eustace-Duckett. A copy of this photo (Hardymount in Castlemore) from about 1950 was given by one of the daughters to my friend Kathleen Hosey, and it shows the group getting ready for the hunt. The Eustace-Ducketts were renowned Hunt Masters and specially bred a hunting dog, the Castlemore Labrador Retriever, which is still highly sought after today.
