Castles of Leinster: Foulkscourt, Kilkenny (1)
Foulkscourt Castle can be found at the end of a long laneway between Johnstown and Crosspatrick. The laneway ends inevitably at a farm, and the castle is at the bottom of a downward sloping field to woodland. Unfortunately little is known about it other than it is a Butler tower of five storeys which passed to the Hely's (Healy's?), in 1698. The castle was enclosed by a bawn of which just a portion of the surrounding wall survives, complete with its three storey gatehouse.
