Castles of Leinster: Trim, Meath (3)
Across the river from the mighty keep is the sole surviving gateway of the town wall of Trim, that had at one time as many as five such gateways incorporated within its 2km long circuit. This gate known as ‘Sheep Gate’ was between the Augustinian abbey and the Porch field which the abbey owned in 1540. The arched passage seen in the photo led to a now blocked doorway in the south wall that gave access from the Porch field to the town when the main gate was closed.
