Doneraile Court

Doneraile Court

[Lord Doneraile was a popular hunting man who one day came on some local people digging out foxes. They had unearthed a young cub which they were reluctant to kill and His Lordship asked if he could have it. They agreed and he reared the fox as his pet and took it everywhere as his mascot. Unfortunately the fox lead to his eventual downfall. The fox contracted rabies and bit His Lordship as well as his coachman Barrer in early January 1887. They both went to Paris to Louis Pasteur and stayed a month getting Pasteur’s new vaccination treatment and came home ostensibly cured. While Barrer never looked back, Lord Doneraile fell ill with what was described as hydrophobia or rabies in August of 1887. Though tended by the best doctors in Cork who kept in touch with doctors in London and Pasteur in Paris, Lord Doneraile was dead within a week. Thus began the legend that Lord Doneraile may have been the last person in Ireland to have died from rabies].
