History of Gort

Just North of the village is the entrance to Coole Park once home of Lady Gregory who played a central role in the literary revival in Ireland. The house was demolished in 1941 but the tree on which her guests carved their initials is still standing. On the tree the following initials are still visible, WBY (William Butler Yeats), GBS (George Bernard Shaw) and many others. Yeats lived at the Castle of Thoor just North-East of the village. The tower has been restored as a Yeats Museum.
