Clonalis, County Roscommon – High Kings and Civil Wars

The home of Piers O’Conor Nash, nephew of the O’Conor Don, this fabulous Roscommon home holds the Inauguration Stone upon which nearly thirty O’Conor kings of Connaught were crowned. Clonalis was awarded the HHI O’Flynn Group Heritage Prize in 2022. Turtle recounts a visit to the house which he conducted on behalf of National Geographic Magazine.
