We love to hear your comments on blogs we post on the website.  It’s great that they can inspire you and bring back memories like the following which we’ve received from Stephen Murray.

Commenting on a feature about the famous dolls’ house, Titania’s Palace, Stephen writes: “Am I one of the fortunate?

“That I was able to see Titania’s Palace, in its entirety in a big empty house beside a lake near the town of Gory, Wexford R.o.I.

“In July 1952, I was staying with friends in the Barnland Gory, and as I had travelled from Dublin on a motorcycle I was able to visit the house at the cost of 3 pence.

“Some 20 years ago, I was told that the original owners were the ESMONDES of Ballynastragh.  Early in WWII a couple of German war ships ran through the channel to the North Sea and safety.

They were attacked by a detachment of six Fairey Swordfish torpedo bombers led by a Eugene Esmonde who was killed in action and awarded a posthumous VC!”
