Dunleckney Manor

Dunleckney Manor, Bagenalstown, County Carlow is the subject of this sepia photograph by E. F Barton c.1870. It shows the main avenue approach to Dunleckney Manor. This house was the ancient seat of the Bagenals of Idrone. In 1660 Dudley Bagenal regained his father's estate which had been earlier confiscated because of the part played by Sir Walter in the Confederate War. Dudley supported King James at the Battle of the Boyne and lost the estate again but it was later regained by Dudley's son Walter in 1712. In 1785 Sarah Bagenal heiress of the Bagenal Estate married Philip Newton of Bennekerry. In circa 1850 the house was renovated by the architect Daniel Robertson in the Tudor style.
