Passing of Desmond Guinness of Leixlip Castle

Response from The Guinness Family of Leixlip Castle on the passing of Desmond Guinness.

Born Desmond Walter on 8th September 1931 to Bryan and Diana Guinness, The 2nd Baron and Baroness Moyne. He passed away on 20th August 2020.

He was an author on Georgian Art and Architecture and a conservationist. He was the cofounder of The Irish Georgian Society, an architectural heritage and preservation organisation which promotes and aims to encourage an interest in the conservation of distinguished examples of architecture and the allied arts of all periods in Ireland. In 1958 he bought Leixlip Castle in County Kildare.

The reply is in the form of a card which on the front has a picture of Desmond Guinness and inside is a message signed by His wife Penelope, his son Patrick and his daughter Marina.
