Inside the castle.

Drimnagh Castle ,

I was lucky enough to get a guided tour or the renovated Drimnagh castle in the heart of Dublin , on the long mile road. It's an amazing building inside and out. With the timber roof faithfully recreated and the windows and doorways cut in local irish limestone, all the more amazing with the gardens and court yard, pat mcafee was giving the guided tour http://homepage.eircom.net/~mcafee/

Pat has a vast experience with stone masonry and carving and has published many books .
