Avondale House Info
Avondale House was built in 1777 for Samuel Hayes, a barrister who wrote a book on Irish Forestry and was a pioneer of the re-afforestation of Ireland, planting many thousands of trees on the estate. He bequeathed it to his friend and fellow MP Sir John Parnell in 1795 and this is the birthplace and home of Charles Stewart Parnell (1846–1891) one of the leading political leaders in Irish history.
The house is set in the Avondale Forest Park in over 2 km² (500 acres) of land.
