Brittas Castle in Clonaslee

Brittas Castle.

A short spin today to Clonaslee and back. After a hard session on the Turbo yesterday it seemed sensible to go for an easy relaxed spin... 

I got a few photographs of the remains of Brittas Castle while I was there. Not much left of it unfortunately.

Built in 1869 for Major-General Francis Plunkett Dunne it was destroyed in a fire in 1942.

 It looks like there will be ongoing work to build anew around the remains. Some work has been done at the moment. I believe at one stage there were plans to make it into a small hotel. It is in private ownership.
