Newtown Castle, Co. Kilkenny

Newtown Castle, near Callan, County Kilkenny, in April 1986. This is what happened in those days when one was on a castle hunting trip – you only had 36 max number of photographs in a film. If you loaded your camera very carefully sometimes you could push it out to take a 37th photo. 
A fine well built Sweetman tower, 4 stories. 
Vault over first floor. Spiral stairs. Window seats. Remains of chimney pieces. Garderobes. Shot holes. Some later windows. Interesting loop to right of door.
