This is one of the houses of Lord Mountbatten—his summer residence. He was killed here in his boat in 1979 by an IRA bomb. As it happens, we are here when Prince Charles is making a visit to Ireland and Monachmoor in particular as a peace and reconciliation tour. Prince Charles has met with the head of Sinn Fein and others that only a couple of years ago would have been impossible. Good on you, Charles! It seems to have gone very well.
