Coolhull Castle, Co. Wexford

Coolhull Castle, County Wexford, in August 1987.
Those were the wonderful days when the only thing that barred access to our Irish National Monuments was a flattened old wooden palette, regardless of the state of the building. Some intrepid explorers featured here.

A classic example of a medieval hall house, a modification of the traditional tower house style, which included many of old features of crenellations, bartizans, yetts and much more.
