Irish, mahogany grandfather clock by Patrick Donegan, Dublin, circa 1875.

This keyhole design case is Donegan's signature clock. With the use of beautiful mahogany, Donegan has produced a wonderful clock. An eight-day, weight-driven movement which will strike hourly on a gong. The gong giving a beautiful tone to the strike. The white dial, with elegant roman numerals also showing Donegan's signature and city of work - Dublin.

The clock is sold mechanically restored and guaranteed for one year.

Our shop in Patrick St. is located very close to where Patrick Donegan traded - 32 Dame St. Patrick was born in 1829 and died in 1926. He was the nephen of John Donegan, (1794-1862) known as the Patriot clockmaker. John Donegan is said to have given a chalice to every newly ordained priest. John's legacy in his trading years in Dublin before his death on November 18th, 1862 is legendary. Time stood still for his funeral, when over 4000 people followed is cortege to Glasnevin Cemetery. The Donegan family of watchmakers would be noted as the most prominent Irish horologists of the 19th century.

It is fantastic to have the family background of Patrick Donegan and his clock would be a wonderful asset to have in any home.
