Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
Wouldn't be surprised if some of your best detectives could hazard a guess as to where the church, whose interior you started to describe, is located. I have no idea where the fine building shown, is located.
There are arms on the building.
Looks like two stags supporting a quartered shield with a crown and maybe a ship? Maybe a boar?
The arms have a coronet, so baron or better.
Shelton Abbey, Arklow! (I looked at Eason photos nearby in the catalogue, and they are all mislabelled, and all near Arklow. Looking in the NIAH for Arklow produced this).
I'm busy today, but you might try here: archiseek.com/buildings/ireland-buildings/demolished/page...
A lot of stuff north of the border wound up flattened.
The Arms are of the Earls of Wicklow, and the "boar" is a lion.
The current building is set in extensive grounds and replaced a previous less extensive country house which had, in 1690, accommodated the fleeing James II of England after the Battle of the Boyne.
Is it the 12th July today?
The wikipedia article on the Earl of Wicklow says the house was in the family until 1951, so still the seat of an Earl in this photo, Ralph Francis Forward-Howard, who was the 7th Earl from 1891 until 1946.
As well as being an Earl, he sat in the Irish Senate from 1922-28.
As I mentioned above, several nearby shots have the wrong title in the catalogue. I think the intended title for this one is "Castle, Arklow, Co. Wicklow" which ended up on EAS_3842, a picture of Glasnevin Post Office.
With a tree and iron fence - earlier?

ET B295 - a drawing, definitely before 1892.

The (pink) one above is much earlier - see the small window panes (12 per window), also seen in this stereo pair - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000564102 . I think all the others in the catalogue have larger panes (2 per window),

Unlike yesterday's Taravie, I just want to be clear that I never 'holidayed' here in my youth, or since.
Buena serie de fotos antiguas .
Muchas gracias a todos! Map, tags, and description are all updated. Now to bed with you all - there is a curfew to consider!
