Castles of Munster: Ballytarsna, Tipperary
This 70 foot 5 storey tower of the Hacket family dates from the C15 with ongoing excavation of the site revealing that the bawn wall may be even earlier, possibly late C13 or early C14. The castle is currently undergoing a process of meticulous restoration to the highest standards, indeed, nothing less might be expected from the Tipperary School of Stonemasonry that is located here.
