Did Ireland's answer to Indiana Jones bring home a Poltergeist in 1855?
Normally I wouldn't document a house that was in such a state of ruin unless it had an interesting history, which I think you'll agree with me that this one has! I've known about this house for some years and thought I'd finally visit it and make good use of the drone for some aerial shots.
Seafield house Co Sligo was built in the 1840s by a wealthy landlord named William Phibbs. Williams son Owen was an archaeologist who travelled the world in search of antiquities and rare relics. Some reports state that he had also partaken in grave robbing, which might explain some things!
