Source of Salvage Sought

The decoration on a roof of a single-storey cottage close to the remains of Clongill Castle, County Meath. A pair of wonderfully carved limestone sphinxes flank what might be either an eagle or a phoenix. These figures look to have been salvaged from a grand entrance gate, but where was it, and what happened to the rest of the building? All suggestions welcome…

    How extraordinary. Presume you have knocked on the door of the cottage.

  2. That is a neat touch, the light is on so you can see them at night time like you said probably came from the castle.

    They are from nearby Arch Hall
