  • Danagher House



    Above is the Danagher house.
    It also survives and is located on the estate of Ashford Castle.
    Just the same except in the film there was no glass porch at the front door.

    If you look in the background you can see one of the female crew
    with the coat over her shoulders no doubt ready to pass to Maureen once the scene was shot.



    Is this Maureen or her stand-in Etta??
    or is it Maureen, our friends in Ireland are not sure either!


    Personally I think it's Maureen

  • Ethanedwards- thank you for the videos they are beautiful with pleasant memories and
    the Music enhances the mood. Where can I get a copy of that music?
    I have a desire to go back to Ireland sometime and go to Cong.
