1876 – Rossmore Mausoleum, Monaghan, Co. Monaghan

Architect: E.J. Tarver




The Rossmore Mausoleum was designed by E.J. Tarver for the 4th Baron Rossmore who died after a hunting accident at Windsor Castle in 1874 aged 23. Built on a rocky outcrop over a small river and waterfall, it’s an odd building in appearance, with a shallow dome. After being neglected for many years, is now being restored. A group has raised money for the terracotta roof and dome to be repaired. They’re currently researching the stained glass with a view to reproducing it.
