Avena House

Yeat’s mother Susan Pollexfen owned the still occupied Avena House, pictured left, in the centre of the village and the poet spent many summers there as he visited Lissadell and other noted houses of the time.

Built in the 1840s the house is set on slightly elevated site in mature grounds behind high stone boundary wall with tennis court, formal garden and gravel paths. Sligo Today.
