Hegartys will auction the contents of Kilmaloda House, former residence of Beamish Family, Cork

Kilmaloda House

Kilmaloda House

We are pleased to announce that Hegartys have been favoured with the sale of the contents of Kilmaloda House, Timoleague, Co. Cork. This auction will take place on Monday, 3th March 2014, with viewing on Sunday & Monday (day of sale). Some background on the house follows, which will set the scene for the auction!

About 1799, the Beamish family, master brewers of Cork City, decided to build a country house. Kilmaloda House replaces an earlier house which stood in the same position. The Beamishes settled into life as country gentry, maintaining a pack of hounds behind the extensive stables. Edith Somerville (of Irish RM fame) describes going by train, in her diaries, from Castletownshend to ‘hunt with Dick Beamish’s hounds at Kilmaloda. The Census of 1911 shows Sampson Beamish living at Kilmaloda with his wife, 4 family members and 6 indoor servants and an old farmer who was a stable boy in 1916 recalls there were another 10 outdoor servants.

Subsequent owners included the McCarthy Morrogh family, members of the Burnett family of the London White Satin gin dynasty, and most recently, the Moseley family, including Retired Royal Navy Commander Charles Sheridan Moseley and his wife Ursula Anne Marie, who moved here from the UK with five children.
