Fota, family seat of the Smith-Barrys, Earls of Barrymore, located on Fota or Forty Island in Cork Harbour. Fota Gardens, noted for their internationally - famous Arboretum, are now administered by Fota Trust. The island, which also includes Fota Wildlife Park, has been partly leased to a Development Company by U.C.C., who purchased it from the Estate when Mrs. Bell, last of the Smith-Barry family, died. The development has been a controversial issue since the late 1980's. A golf course, the first stage of the development, has opened on Fota in September 1993.
