Beau Parc, County Meath, built in the 1770s possibly by amateur architect Nataniel Clements. This plate was engraved by Thomas Milton after Thomas Roberts (1748-78) and issued in the third installment (of six) of Milton's 'A Collection of Select Views from the different Seats of the Nobility and Gentry in the Kingdom of Ireland', published 1783-93, with a total of 24 plates. Milton (1743-1827), son of marine painter John Milton, is believed to have been a pupil of William Woollett.
