1703 – Gola House, Co. Monaghan



Unusual house, similar to another in the county at Anketell. An unpopular family, the owners of Gola had been planted by King William in the 1660s. During the troubles of 1922, the Gola house was burned and the stones of the wrecked house were used to construct the present Roman Catholic Church and the stone coat of arms was thrown down the well, then 85 feet deep, and 30 feet of rubble was thrown on top.
