I'm an archaeology student with UCD and am currently researching Kilkea Castle for a paper I am writing on it. I also need to get up to view the castle, take pictures for my paper as has been requested by my professor but finding the right people to contact let alone getting permission is proving to be quite tough.
Can anyone advise, right now in this current time of KilKea castle is open for public viewing or are all gates locked and closed? Is there a local caretaker that I could contact maybe for permission to view the castle itself, if so, would anyone have the name and number?
I would also like to implore local historians of the area and Kilkea castle if they could advise any good books, records, documents I should look up as research as part of my paper as this is also proving difficult. There is practically nothing in UCD library and even less on line. What I have found on line is not structured, most of which has different dates, names and so on, which is of no help to me.
Thanks in advance for all help, it's very much appreciated
