House History - The property was constructed by the Fitzwilliam family of Coolattin. Lakeen House was reputedly used as a training ground for the domestic staff of the main house, now uninhabited and part of golf course in the village. In the late 1940s the eighth Earl of Fitzwilliam died in a plane crash together with Kathleen Kennedy, sister of John F. Kennedy. The estate was eventually broken up after Fitzwilliam's daughter, Lady Juliet de Chair, sold it in 1977.
