    ... protects it from the Atlantic. It was grand in design, had a gothic church built nearby to house the remains of the premature death of the castle builder's wife and a most impressive walled garden. The castle/abbey has had no expense spared in its construction and furnishing. It was set on ten thousand acres and was intended as a hunting and fishing retreat from the owner's residence in London. It had a large number of workers who tended ...

    ... people, stank of incense and had no tabernacle. If that wasn't enough, the biggest set of Jumbo Rosary Beads decorated and external wall.

    ... Construction started on the castle soon after the Normans landed in Ireland in the late 1100’s. It is one of about 1200 they constructed here and it took around 30 years to build.
