This 150 year old house was the centre of a large cattle farm, owned by the Cosgrave family, a local farming family. There was 1400 acres with the property in the 1940s, when Ireland was supplying cattle to the British market. Cattle were bought in the West of Ireland, brought to Enfield by rail for fattening on the rich land of County Meath. During the winter, cattle were stall fed and ready for market in the spring. Drovers brought the cattle into Dublin on the main road, now the N4.
In the 1940s and 1950s race horses were bred and trained on this farm with many successful wins at Punchestown and elsewhere, 3 very successful ones were ‘GUILT EDGE’, ‘TIME WILL TELL’ and ‘READY CASH’.
