Castles of Leinster: Athy, Kildare (1)
White's Castle (to give it its proper name) has a most attractive setting beside the east bank of the River Barrow. The original tower house was built in the early C15 by Sir John Talbot and subsequently enlarged at a later date. The openings of all three storeys, the battlements, and corner turrets, are all modern.
