    Default Williamite House West Limerick

    its in a terrible state and is very dangerus condtion, a slate fell near me and nearly had hme head off and tha was just for openng the front door i think the whold place is ready to fall down so i sent me wife inside with ther camera to trake some of the inside. you wouldn't know thwe place was there if you didnt know because ye cant see much of it from the roads and its upa passage with original gates on what i forget to take pic of, hope you enjoy the pics, Faing.so if the inside shots are shite blame the wife

    Some excellent shots,I love the old bicycle still with its basket attached.Not so sure on the gallantry of sending the wife to do the inside shots though.I live in hope that was a joke.
    Having walked across half rotten beams,scaled heavily rusted drainpipes,fallen down holes,men in uniforms,not so friendly nor so little pouches,and lunatics with guns,I find the adrenaline rush all part of the fun,if that is quite the right word?

    No i wasn't joking, she weighs less than halfo what i wegh and i am 5 times as strong as she would be therefore in the event of a floo=r colapsing she is 10 times more likly to be rescued from wherever she fell into. Plus she's like a ferret and like going underground an into dark inacessible plaxes and is just as good as me with a camra. Now i pray to my holy god that she don't read this.:)
    Shes also very handy when the upstairs of aold biulding is in bad repair as well, its better that she fell on me than me fall on her if the flor give way

    Ah ha! The light shines brighter in my dim lit mind.
    I was actually being sarcastic,which is well known to be the lowest form of wit,hence the dim lit mind.
    Great shots.The whole place is well on its way to back to nature.Total decay,exquisite beauty!

    That's a lovely old house...love the way it's so overgrown with ivy. Some great bits of remains.
    Kudos to Mrs Faing...good pics both. :)

    Looks like a fascinating place. What does Williamite refer to?

    I like this, especially seeing the really old battered and rusty bridle in there. :) and the old bike. This is the kind of place I'd love to live in (albeit with a roof etc). Nice work and a lovely find.

    That looks great Faing, I must add my thanks to you actually mate. I have just come back from Ireland after visiting there for a week to see an old friend who lives near Doon up in the mountains there. She is a biker as well, as am I. Anyway I saw your write up on Beagh Castle and went and did that myself whilst I was over there. Super place only spoilt really by Shannon airport and those ruddy oil tanks. Ruined some of my pics they did :) I wanted to do that railway station as well but ran out of time. Have you ever done Dromore Castle? I saw it from the main road and went up to where the gatehouse was but again I was running out of time to have a look. Is Askeaton Castle worth a look? I'll be back over in the summer for another visit and I'm starting a wish list for places now so if you have any recommendations I'd be very grateful.
