Shanbally Castle was located near Cloghen, Co Tipperary, Ireland, and built for Cornelius O’Callaghan, the first Viscount Lismore, in 1818. It was the largest house built in Ireland by the noted English architect John Nash. The castle was acquired by the Irish Land Commission in 1954. On 21 March 1960 the castle, after much controversy, was demolished. This chimneypiece was purchased from the castle at that time and installed in a local house until it was acquired by Ryan & Smith.

John Nash (18 January 1752 – 13 May 1835) was a British architect responsible for much of the layout of Regency London under the patronage of the Prince Regent, and during his reign as George IV. Nash was also a pioneer in the use of the picturesque in architecture. His best-known buildings are the Royal Pavilion, Brighton, and Buckingham Palace.
