Castles of Leinster: Srah, Offaly (1)
Located on the Grand Canal Way near Tullamore, Srah was built in 1588 by the Elizabethan officer John Briscoe from Cumbria. It is notable for its numerous gunloops, and the bartizans with rooms opening off the fourth storey. There is also a particularly fine two-light angle loop, its mullion comprising a section of the SW corner by the west facing entrance. There is also another fine single angle loop that pierces the NE corner Link. The exterior is complete to the parapet, on which is a machicolation directly over the entrance. The ruins of a C17 house adjoins the NW corner.
