The restored painting by E.T. Parris, of Hamilton Knox Grogan Morgan with his wife Sophia and daughter Elizabeth, of Johnstown Castle Wexford. Painted in 1833. Restored over five weeks by Pearl O’Sullivan. It will, from Tuesday, be hanging in the dining room of the Castle. A photo cannot do justice to the vibrant colours and wonderful detail of this painting. Under Sophia’s left arm can be seen drawings of the west wing of the castle, by architect Daniel Robertson. Interestingly, room in which the restoration took place, can be seen in the drawings, being the ground floor room under the clock. #johnstowncastle#wexford#irelandsancienteast#visitwexford#art#portrait#restoration .
The Old Kilcullen Round Tower, Kilcullen,Co. Kildare. You can see the sun setting over Dún Ailinne in background to the west. There was a monastery situated here which was founded by St. Patrick in the 5th century. The monastery was raided by the Vikings in 932 and it was burned in 1114. The foundations of the monastery are still visible today. The tower was built during the 9th century due to fears of viking raids.
