Clara Castle, Co. Kilkenny

Clara Castle is a well-preserved tower house, built in the sixteenth century by the Shorthall family. It has been well documented with a detailed study published in 1937 by Harold Leask. Dendrochronological analysis of the surviving oak floor beams, has dated the building to c.1540.
