From Phill's archives :)
Duckett’s Grove, the 18th, 19th and early 20th century home of the Duckett family, was formerly at the centre of a 12,000 acre (4,856 hectares) estate that has dominated the Carlow landscape for over 300 years. http://www.carlowgardentrail.com/ducketts_grove.htm

Thank you for all the good wishes, thoughts and prayers earlier this week. I passed each one on to Phill. Lots of medical appointments in the net few weeks but I hope to be posting more regularly.
