History of Gort

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.
