Florencecourt restoration markedFlorencecourt restoration marked
Tuesday, 29th March 2005

The fiftieth anniversary of the restoration of Florencecourt House after it was extensively damaged by fire is to be marked by a commemorative exhibition which was launched during the week. During the fire most of the paintings and a good number of the books within the house were salvaged and these will form part of the exhibition, which will run until October. One of the damaged sections of the property, the eighteenth century drawing room ceiling, was not restored as there was no photographic evidence from which to work. However, a photograph has been discovered which was taken by the Irish Georgian Society in 1911, and there is a possibility the ceiling can now be restored.
