Puxley/Dunboy Castle
Puxley Manor Infrared
Also known as Puxley Manor. In 1730 the Puxley
family were granted the lands belong to the O'Sullivans
in west Cork.  The Puxleys began to build a grand
mansion close to the older castle of the O'Sullivan
Beare, and they were cursed by the O'Sullivan 
family. The Prophesies would be that cows would
wander through their halls. That would come true.

The Puxleys were shrewd businessmen, and supported
smugglers who frequented the wild coastline.
In 1866 a Puxley descendant began to make additions
to the estate. When his wife died in childbirth in 1872, he
left the great house unfinished, used only as a summer 
retreat. The great mansion was torched by the Irish
Republican Army during the Troubles in 1921.
