Is the blue door typical of old houses in Strokestown? It looks a bit elaborate. My people left in 1846-7, so I don't have any information on what they might have lived in.

Thanks for posting it -- no matter what its history!

@saoirsein2016. No, this door is set into the wall surrounding the gardens of Strokestown House. Although it is probably old, I suspect it is decorative (size of keyhole?). Maybe someone else who knows more about this door might add a comment with more info.

It could be for gardeners to come and go without disturbing the "owners." No matter its history, it makes as lovely shot.
