KILDUFF CASTLE

castle1

This ruined castle lies next to the Tipperary-Limerick road (N24) near the Village of Pallasgreen in County Limerick.

Castles of Munster: Kilduff, Limerick near to New Pallasgreen, Nicker, Old Bridge and Old Pallas, Limerick, Ireland. This castle is on the outskirts of New Pallasgreen just off the main N24. When in 1583 Moriery Mergagh met his death in the Desmond rebellion, it was said at the time that he had a tower here.

If this was indeed Kilduff Castle, it must be assumed that it had just been built. The west and south walls of this tower stand to full height, as many as four storeys evident together with an attic, its windows in the gables surmounted by chimney stacks.

A circular bartizan on pyramidal corbels can be seen at the NW corner. Kilduff was held from 1617 until the 1650’s by the Hurley’s, and in 1667 it passed to the trustees of Erasmus Smith’s charity schools, whose tenants were the holders.

RYANS HONEY FARM

Pallasgreen, Co. Limerick.

Phone: +353 (0) 62 57147

The production hives are all located within a 15 mile radius of the farm. The bee garden is a successful attempt to put back in to the countryside what modern farming is rapidly taking out of it.

It has created an area of blossoms, berries and fruit which have established an ecological cycle that integrates the three kingdoms of plant, animal and man.

The Honey Farm is not an area of manicured lawns free of weeds. It is an open space full of maturing grasses and colourful wild flowers.

Many maligned flowers such as dandelion are held in high regard and are given the recognition they deserve.
