For the Chop

Further instances of the near-ubiquitous urban dereliction now found in Ireland: houses close to the central square of Johnstown, County Kilkenny, a town laid out in the 18th century by the Hely family who lived nearby in Foulkscourt House. The latter has since been lost, although some of the associated buildings survive. However, it looks like these little properties will not last much longer.

    Hi Robert,
    This should read Foulkscourt House.
    Foulkstown is a town land two miles south of Kilkenny City on the Waterford Road.
