Two Saints & a Lot of Us Sinners

A History of One of Ireland's Oldest Inhabited Castles

by Brian Donovan Thompson

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 02/04/2020

  $25.99
This is a beautifully illustrated historical publication outlining the history of one of Ireland's oldest inhabited castles; Cloghan Castle in County Offaly.

The stories which emerge serve as a microcosm of the history of Ireland and her neighbours.

There are a number of Cloghan Castles - Cloghan meaning 'stone dwelling'.This particular Cloghan Castle has now been sold and is no longer open to the public.

However, with extracts from historical documents including diaries and letters, and the author's memoirs and observations - you will be guided through your very own personal tour of this castle and travel back in time to learn of the High Chieftain Madden, the effects of Elizabethan forces, and later occupation by Cromwellians and Jacobites.

The history of more recent centuries includes: personal accounts from the famine, a few colourful 19th and 20th century owners, their devoted retainers, and through to present day wildlife conservation.
