An undated horizontal brass dial 610mm in diameter in front of Carton House, previously the home of the 20th Earl of Kildare (later the Duke of Leinster) for whom the dial was made by a famous English maker Thomas Heath sometime between 1752 and 1766. Carton House is about 2km from Maynooth on the N4 road to Galway.

There is now a 4* luxury hotel and two golf courses at Carton. Click here to visit their website
