... was pulled down or destroyed somehow, in the early 1600’s the Parkes who came from England took it over and built a large house that incorporated one of the curtain walls and two of the towers.

It has a lovely outlook over Lough Gill.

... the car a couple of parks forward. By the time I got out of the car it was starting to rain - big spots.
