In Pictures: WAHS Outing To Inistioge

It was a beautiful day in Inistioge for our visit of the village and nearby Woodstock Estate, led by Mr Ben Murtagh and Mr John Kirwan. We learned so much about the area from medieval times to this day...
Now a private house, the building with the three high windows
 was the former Methodist Church. 

The Alms House, built in the 18th century for the care
of the widows of the area. 

The 'Armillary Sphere' used to explain the seasons,
was in Woodstock gardens, and now stands on the site of the old R.I.C barracks

Plaque on the wall of the C of I Church.

Detail of the statue in Mary Tighe's mausoleum.

The end of the tour: members and friends
 in the walled gardens of Woodstock Estate.
