The estate at Moyode was energetically developed by Burton Persse in the early decades of the 19th century and he is commemorated by an inscription on the arched entranceway to the stableyard, dated 1822. A century later, during the Easter Rising of 1916, the house was garrisoned by 700 volunteers under the command of Liam Mellows. The tower house built by the Dolfin de Burgos was restored in recent years by the American author and historian James Charles Roy but Burton Persse house was razed by Republican activists during the War of Independence and only a ruined shell survives.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire this historical site to develop a residential property and retain the walled gardens with their truly impressive stone walls and the ornamental stone entrance gateways.
