Estates in Co. Wicklow

Post by Christopher » 14 Feb 2009, 23:32

The Wicklow National Park website mentions that ten large estates covered more than half of the entire land area of County Wicklow. The largest was the Rockingham estate, centred on Coolattin, which covered almost 80,000 of the county's 500,000 acres. Estates which covered 20,000 acres or more were held by Lords Powerscourt, Meath, Hugo, Wicklow and Beresford and the Archbishop of Dublin.
