Ruins of Lowther Lodge
Ruins of Lowther Lodge
Built some time after 1767 by George Lowther, M.P. for Ardee. Shown as 'Lowther Lodge' in Taylor and Skinner's Maps of the Roads of Ireland, published 1778, and as 'Lowtherstone' on O.S. six-inch maps from 1843 onwards. By 1802 it was the home of Townley Patten Filgate (b 1753-d 1828), barrister, son of Alexander Filgate of Lisrenny, Ardee. Described in his obituary as "a cheerful and happy companion". From 1803 to 1822 he kept a daily farm diary, extracts of which were published (2008) as a book by the Balbriggan Historical Society. Occupants at the time of the 1911 census were Tryphena McCartney Filgate and Clare McCartney Filgate (born in Bombay) and servants Brigid Egan (House maid), Rose Berill (Between maid), Mary Malone (Cook) and Kate Sands (Parlour maid). In the late 1940s Dermot Lowther Macartney Filgate was in residence. The north end of the house extends into adjoining square O1866 : Lowther Lodge, Knocknagin, Co. Dublin. Not to be confused with Lowther Lodge in South Kensington, HQ of the Royal Geographical Society.
