This chapter describes Castle Saunderson and its history. The castle had its origins in the seventeenth century as a fortified dwelling house, and was a tangible expression of the consolidation of middling gentlemen. The bog garden and the surrounding demesne land were much more than a recreational resource. It was home to the many servants of the Saunderson family and served as a social focus for a wider section of the people of Cavan.

Keywords: Castle Saunderson; demesne; Cavan
