Ffrench Mausoleum

  • Ffrench Mosoleum Monivea Demesne, Monivea, Co. Galway Eircode: H91-NPH2 GPS Location: 154280, 235998 (map)

This highly unusual mausoleum, commissioned by Kathleen de Kindiard in 1897 to house the remains of her father, is in the form of a medieval towerhouse, and took four years to build.

The architect was reportedly Francis Persse, younger brother of Lady Augusta Gregory, founder of the Abbey Theatre. When Kathleen died in 1938 she too was laid to rest in the crypt of the mausoleum. A stunning feature in the forest, the mausoleum is a unique and beautifully crafted structure with a highly crafted interior
