Prehen House, Derry / Londonderry
Prehen House, Derry / Londonderry
An historic house, built in 1740 for Andrew Knox, MP for Donegal, after he married Prehen heiress Honoria Tomkins two years earlier. The architect was almost certainly Michael Priestley who did a lot of work in Derry and Donegal counties around that time; his initials MP were found on a rafter in the attic.


It holds a tragic tale - see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
