1812 – Garvey House, Aughnacloy, Co. Tyrone

Architect: Francis Johnston


A large three-storey, seven-bay house, for local MP, Nathaniel Montgomery Moore. The house was named after his mother’s maiden name. Ultimately the cost was said to have been £70,000, which bankrupted the client, who retired to France in 1815. The house was dismantled in 1821 and the contents sold off. Now just a shell. Large farmyard to the rear, still in use.
