More from the County Cavan town of Cootehill on this week’s Thursday Doors. I’m sorry I’ve been absent most of this month, I’ve had a very busy September. The plus side of all the traveling I’ve done has been a nice collection of interesting Thursday Doors that I will share with you over the coming months.
Opposite the hotel stands the town’s courthouse, which was built in 1833. In front of the building a peace garden has been installed with memorials to soldiers who died in both world wars and subsequent conflicts.
At the top of the main street, not far from the courthouse stands a detached Italianate two-storey bank, built in 1858 and designed by William Murray. It’s now privately owned and is being tastefully renovated, retaining much of its historic features.
I’ll finish off with a photo of a Church of Ireland building which dates from 1818. It looks down the main street of the town and is in very good condition. That blue sky should tell you what a beautiful day it was on my visit to Cootehill. Dan has some great links to interesting posts from around the world over on his blog this week. On next week’s Thursday Doors I’ll be posting the last of my photographs from Cootehill.
