Lindesay manor

When we arrived in Ireland we went to the ancestral manor house of the Lindesay's, we weren't sure if we would even be allowed to drive in as it is now an agriculural college. But we drove in,no-one seemed to be concerned, then we met a man who worked on the premises and he contacted one of the teachers who knows a lot of the Lindesay history, he showed us through the old manor house which has been used for offices and some classes, it has now been closed and is due to be restored as the manor house. He even told us where to go to find the private cemetery and mausoleum for the Lindesay clan, there is also a Lindesayville which was built for the estate workers.
