Phase 3 Continues We are back in Ireland working the castle. Despite a longer than expected break due to the pandemic, we are working away on Tower, prepping the Big House, and cleaning up the grounds. Read about our construction activities here...
Over time we plan to live in the property and also use it for community and historical events. As medieval re-enactors, we have long been attracted to historical buildings and would like to see this lovely property have life and energy in it once again.
Since this journey will take several years, and is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us, we are interested in having others come along and share in the experience. This website is intended to tell that story and illustrate how one building can be used for many different projects and collaborative learning.
We're going on an adventure here: definitely outside our comfort zone and with many challenges ahead - we are looking forward to all of it!
