      I was interested in the history of this lovely house and came up with the following piece.
      During the Irish Civil War (1922 - 23), the Cottage Hospital in Bantry, was destroyed by fire. Arethusa Leigh-White offered Bantry House as a hospital to the nuns of the Convent of Mercy, who in those days ran the hospital. Arethusa only made one proviso; the injured on both sides of the conflict should be cared for. A chapel was sanctified in the library and the nuns and their patients moved in for five years.

      Thanks for the lovely pictures Finbarr.
