  • Duckett's Grove was built around 1830 by William Duckett in an estate covering more than 5,000 acres (20 km2) of the County Carlow countryside, and was originally a two storey Georgian country house. Beginning in 1818, it was redesigned in a castellated Gothic revival style by Thomas Cobden for John Davidson Duckett.[2] This extension of the building was funded by a number of marriages into wealthy merchant families, and resulted in the Georgian features being removed or hidden.[3] The building incorporates a number of towers and turrets of varying shapes – round, square and octagonal.[4] One tall octagonal turret rises from the structure. Duckett’s Grove is elaborately ornamented with oriels and niches containing statues.[2] Several statues on pedestals surrounded the building and lined the approaches. The house is situated in the townland of Rainstown, approximately 10km from Carlow and 9km from Tullow, with the broader estate comprising several large townlands and parts of others. At its height the house had a staff of eleven men to maintain the grounds alone.[5] Rare picture of Duckett's Grove before it was destroyed by fire After the death of William Duckett in 1908, the last male Duckett, his wife Maria Georgina Duckett lived on in the property until 1916. By this time she was no longer on speaking terms with her only daughter, Olive.[3] The outcome of this was the disinheritance of her daughter following her death 1937, leaving her what is known as "the angry shilling", just one shilling, from an estate valued at £97,735 at the time.[5] Following the departure of the Ducketts, the estate was managed by an agent until 1921, and was subsequently managed by local farmers, and later by the Land Commission.[6] The division and sale of the estate lands was completed by 1930. During the time the building was empty, it was used by the local IRA and its flying column.[7] Due to the Duckett's good treatment of their tenants and employees over the years, the interiors and furniture were left intact upon the IRAs departure from the house.[5] The Duckett's Grove house was destroyed by fire overnight on 20 April 1933.[2][3] The cause of the fire has not been determined,[6] however the locals reported a fire the week before, which they had managed to extinguish, leading to speculation about the cause of the eventual destructive fire.[5]

At its height the house had a staff of eleven men to maintain the grounds alone.[5] Rare picture of Duckett's Grove before it was destroyed by fire After the death of William Duckett in 1908, the last male Duckett, his wife Maria Georgina Duckett lived on in the property until 1916. By this time she was no longer on speaking terms with her only daughter, Olive.[3] The outcome of this was the disinheritance of her daughter following her death 1937, leaving her what is known as "the angry shilling", just one shilling, from an estate valued at £97,735 at the time.[5] Following the departure of the Ducketts, the estate was managed by an agent until 1921, and was subsequently managed by local farmers, and later by the Land Commission.[6] The division and sale of the estate lands was completed by 1930. During the time the building was empty, it was used by the local IRA and its flying column.[7] Due to the Duckett's good treatment of their tenants and employees over the years, the interiors and furniture were left intact upon the IRAs departure from the house.[5] The Duckett's Grove house was destroyed by fire overnight on 20 April 1933.[2][3] The cause of the fire has not been determined,[6] however the locals reported a fire the week before, which they had managed to extinguish, leading to speculation about the cause of the eventual destructive fire.[5]
