||CO. CARLOW, BAGENALSTOWN, COURT HOUSE
||New court house with Ionic portico. 'The parochial school-house, a neat building in the Grecian style, is in Bagnalstown, where also is a handsome court-house in the same style, lately erected at the expense of Philip Bagenal, Esq., in which quarter sessions are held at the usual periods.' (Lewis). Design of court house possibly attributable to DR as Philip Bagenal of Benekerry (second son of Philip Newton of Dunleckney, who assumed name of Bagenal in 1832) was the brother of Walter Newton of Dunleckney, Beauchamp Bartholomew Newton of Rathwade, John Newton of Bagenalstown House, and Henry Newtown of Mount Leinster, who were all clients of DR.
