Castles of Leinster: Louth Hall, Co. Louth (1)
Typical of Irish 'castles', Louth Hall is an amalgamation of various periods, having a C16 tower house at the west end of an C18 and C19 house. Building of the latter commenced in 1760, with a fourth storey with crenellations added later in the C19. The house and castle appear to have been in the hands of the Plunkett family from the 1500s until the mid-C20.
