A Portrait of Killoughry’s Past (DVD)
The Parish of Killoughey, nestled in the foothills of the Slieve Bloom Mountains in County Offaly, is home to a warm and vibrant community.
The Magan Collection, c1890-1910, containing over 1,500 photographs taken by Lt. Colonel Middleton Westenra Biddulph of Rathrobin House provides a glimpse into the lives of the aristocracy and local people of Killoughey at that time.
We experience what life was like inside and outside the “big house”, as its history is traced through to the end of the Civil War.
The parish of Killoughey is still home to many of the proud descendants of the people preserved forever in these unique photographs.
