1870 – Town Gates, Hope Castle, Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan




Fine set of piers and gates flanked by matching gatehouses in an Italianate style. Up until recently the northern gatehouse was in poor repair while the southern house (the right in the postcards) has been restored. The northern has been repurposed as the new town library in late 2023, after undergoing a two year €5 million conservation, restoration and extension upgrade.
