Kilkenny Castle

Kilkenny Castle was built in 1195 to control access to the River Nore seen here, and the junction of several roads. Back then, it would have formed an important element of the defences of the town with four large circular corner towers and a massive ditch. The property was transferred to the people of Kilkenny in 1967 for £50. Now that's a pretty good deal, hunh?
