As part of a new project documenting the history of Powerscourt, a sub-site of the Enniskerry History website is now live. It aims to focus on the history of Powerscourt estate, which I have been researching for several years.
Over this series of posts (target: 100!) I aim to retell the story of Powerscourt – the house, the gardens and the estate. There’ll be a spotlight on the lords of the manor as well as the labourers on the moor; so I hope there will be something to interest everyone.
The first articles in the series are now live, and you can follow the website for regular updates:
- The scarf which your majesty wears
- In the interregnum
- Things just as they were
- Settling down in medieval Powerscourt
- Inside the medieval castle at Powerscourt
