|Glenquin Castle (a classic tower castle)|
with our rented, manual-transmission
VW Golf parked beside the stone wall and
not nearly far enough off the road!
|Steven in the castle doorway.|
|The placard outside explaining the parts of the castle and its history|
|The stile to get in. The banners were|
there from a celebration recently held in honor
of the centenary of the 1916 Rising, in which,
Glenquin castle played a big part
|Standing on the 4th of 6 floors, looking back|
at the stairs. We came up the arched set
and the squared-off set continued up.
Steven went to the top.
I didn't push my luck.
|The living space on the fourth floor. The roof was no longer in evidence - all the floors to this point had been stone.|
The fifth and sixth levels had wooden floors - and they long since rotted away.
|Looking up from the 4th level|
|I love this window, even if it's too|
low to the floor.
|The view of the Irish countryside from the 4th floor. Cloudy|
day, but most of them are, there.
