NOTES: This farm with coach house and outbuildings was part of Gregories, the country estate of the Anglo-Irish politician Edmund Burke (1729-1797). The country house, Gregories Court, was completed in 1793 only to be burnt down in 1813. The farm was acquired in the 1920s by the influential editor and journalist James Louis Garvin (1868-1947) who had the coach house, Piebalds, converted into a library for his own use.
