Emo Court - County Laois

The late 18th century village of Emo originally sprang up around the gates of emo Court. The recently renovated New Inn dates from the village’s foundation, as does the Gothic Catholic Church, which contains the tomb of Lady Portarlington with its recumbent effigy by Boehm. Emo Court was designed in 1790 by architech James Gandon for the first Earl of Portarlington and is a magnificent example of the neo-classical style.
