A1 #TRLT King John's castle in @CarlingfordIRE There's been a good bit of restoration/accessibilty work done since I took these pics, all to the good, but still remember the quiet unrestored days too --many good memories. #Ireland ☘️

A2 #TRLT Actually, I just wrote a piece about Grianan Ailigh, a ringfort in Donegal which has a history spanning (mythical, perhaps) builders far back in the mists of time up to Victorian archaeology, present day research continues too #Donegal #Ireland https://t.co/TWRaVvQYKH

A4 #TRLT Not exactly on point maybe, but the Collins Barracks in Dublin is impressive for what it now houses: @NMIreland 's Decorative arts unit

A5 #TRLT I do not have a photo to share but: Dunluce Castle on the Antrim Coast in Ireland. Equally impressive is Dunottar near Stonehaven in Scotland. Both much closer to the sea than when they were constructed.
