We may have moved to the Lawrence Collection today but we remain firmly in Poole territory of Waterford. This magnificent pile may not have survived the "Troubles" but if it has it would make a most interesting place to visit.

This proved to be a red herring as though the catalogue entry was labelled "Annaghmore", this proved to be "Curraghmore House" - the home of the Marquis of Waterford, and a place we have visited here many times in the past. Thank you one and all for your help in clearing up the confusion! What is particularly pleasing about this is that the old pile did indeed survive the "Troubles" intact!

    Is that a crucifix between the antlers of the stag?

    Why the catalogue confusion between Curraghmore and Annaghmore?

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] According to wiki "2. A stag's head cabossed proper attired or, between the horns a crucifix of the last, thereon the resemblance of Jesus proper " is the La Poer crest of the Marquess of Waterford.

    it says Curraghmore right along the bottom of the photo, someone at NLI must have misred it come catalogue time oh so many years ago?

    pretty fancy place. The photo on wiki is kind of blurry, this one looks great, very sharp.
