The following is a historical reference to Stradbally Hall:    "
Stradbally Hall is still the home of the Cosbys, the only one of the Queens County tribes to have survived in their ancestral lands into the 20th century. Described by Brewer in his Antiquities of Ireland in 1826 as a commodious and eligible mansion, the first house was an O'Moore fortified tower which was obtained by the Cosbys during the reign of Queen Mary. This first Cosby fell in battle with the O'Byrnes at the age of 70 in 1580 having built himself a new castle with the stones of a franciscan friary. The house was enlarged in 1714 and a new front was added sometime after 1740, possibly to the designs of John Aheron, but in 1772 everything was demolished. The new house was built under the direction of one Arthur Roberts.  This is the building which was enlarged and reclad to the designs of Sir Charles Lanyon in 1866-69. Inside there are some rooms with their original simple late 18th century plasterwork and others, like the top lit gallery at the head of the oak staircase, display the height of Victoriana with pink marble columns and elaborate decorative details. Sir Jonah Barrington has a a delightful account of a dinner party at Stradbally at which a certain half blind Dr. Jenkins was sitting next to his host Admiral Cosby. Mistaking the admirals brown gnarled fist for a bread roll he thrust his fork into it with uproarious consequences."

Also in letter dated 1989 from Adrian Cosby, present occupant, points out that there is a Stone Bedroom in the 'Hall' with the inscription "Built by Dudley Lord Sydney, 1772  Arthur Roberts Overseer."
