    Kilkenny old jail & courthouse

    by mvtouring Written Nov 18, 2010

    This is also known as Grace's Castle. The present building is on the site of an ancient castle built around 1210. This had been replaced by 1566 by an Anglo-Irish Town House. the owner James Grace yielded it up to the Crown for use as a jail. He was rewarded by being appointed Constable or Governor of the Jail with an income of 20 nobles a year. Please do not ask me what a noble is have no idea. The building was already in use as a courthouse by the year 1792, shortly after it finished serving as a county jail.
