History of Property

Major Anthony Windham Normand Brabazon was the 14th Earl Meath and grew up at the Kilruddery Demesne before joining the Grenadier Guards in 1930. He returned from the trenches in 1946 to a young family and to Templecarrig, an elegant

double-fronted Georgian property overlooking the ocean. Templecarrig was built as an ancillary home to the Meath estate as the 14th Earl took up his reigns and finally inherited the title of Earl at the Kilruddery estate in 1949 until his later years when

he passed away at the age of 88 in the late 1990’s.
