Emo Court

Another day, another place to visit, this time it was Emo Court in Laois. I have been to Emo Court a few times in the past and it is always worth a visit. Today, we took the house tour, stopped for tea and Lemon Cake and then walked around the lake. The water levels in the lake was very low, die to the good weather and lack of rain that we have had for the last number of months. We watched the swans, ducks and moorhens swimming around on the lake and eating the bread they were been fed by the visitors to the Estate. The house has an interesting history and presently is hosting an Exhibition of Fr Frank Browne’s Photography, which is fascinating on it’s own merits. I have attached photos from the interior and exterior of the House, as well images of Fr Browne’s camera and a chest full of his negatives.
