About: This feature is a composite article comprising a republishing of the text of a concise account of the history and heritage of the building and its contents originally written by Sir Alfred Beit in booklet form in 1978 together with a much shorter opinion piece on its future development by Desmond Fitzgerald, President of the Irish Georgian Society, plus a paragraph on the Alfred Beit Foundation. It would now seem that the concerns of Mr. Fitzgerald regarding the future of Russborough have been allayed by the continuing increase in its popularity as a cultural and tourism destination.
