By repute removed from Shanbally Castle, Clogheen, Co. Tipperary, Ireland prior to the castle's demolition in 1957.
Later bequeathed to Rockwell College, Cahir, Co. Tipperary, Ireland.
Please note the bookcase is signed in pencil 'Jacob Graham, Maker, 1849' to the underside of the lower right section. A 'Jacob Graham and Son' is recorded as working in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary in 1820s in Pigott's Commercial Directory, 1824.
The bookcase should therefore be described as early Victorian and it was probably originally partially fitted into a recess at each end and some consequential alterations and replacements were probably undertaken when it was moved after Shanbally Castle's demolition in 1957.
