When searching for the address of Rathcoffey House, Clane Co. Kildare comes up as the result. However the building sits on a rise a couple of miles outside of town. Co Kildare is criss-crossed with secondary roads connecting market towns. You can spot the house on a number of routes that leave the village. Close access to the area is prohibited. The estate has been turned over to farm fields. The gutted ruin of the big house butts onto a farmyard full of tractors, manure piles and stored equipment. The roof and all the wooden fixtures have burnt or rotted away, the stonework covered in patches of Ivy. Close inspection is awkward with gates and ditches hampering the traditional approach and ploughed fields running up to the door. The artist Sean Lynch drove me as close as he could to explore the location.
