All over Ireland – and indeed the world – this week, famous landmark buildings have been turning green to mark St Patrick’s Day, as part of Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening initiative. On home soil, castles up and down the country have been lit up in green and they look great!

In Ardee however, it’s a different story. Ardee Castle remains locked up and barricaded. It’s a sorry sight. The chances of seeing our beautiful Castle lit up like the examples below seems a very remote possibility.

Ardee Castle has been cordoned off due to safety concerns.
