This photograph was taken on the grounds of Lissadell House, Co. Sligo

Lissadell House was built by Robert Gore Booth in 1836. The house has very strong associations with WB Yeats. He stayed here several times with his brother Jack as a young boy and later was to befriend the Gore Booth sisters Constance and Eva whom he went on to immortalise in verse:

"The light of evening, Lissadell,
Great windows open to the south,
Two girls in silk kimonos, both
Beautiful, one a gazell
e"
