Silken Thomas in Dublin

It’s important, however as this is the place Silken Thomas (known affectionately by one Tour Guide at Maynooth Castle as ‘The Silkster’), threw down his Sword of State and declared rebellion against Henry VIII.

    Sometimes it’s the least impressive buildings that have the most interesting history
