If you are in Carlow Town, be sure to pop into the Carlow County Council Buildings on the Athy Rd to view the Carlow Castle 3D Model and Illustration on display there!
Both the 3D model and illustration are based on the time period of the late 14th century when Carlow was the administrative Capital of Ireland. The 3D printed model of the castle was made by Bryan Leech, Lecturer in Industrial Design and Design Students at IT Carlow. The illustration of the Castle & surrounding areas was undertaken by Uto Hogerzeil, historical reconstruction artist. Both were commissioned by Carlow Town Council in 2013 to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the construction of Carlow Castle in 1213 AD. A free brochure ‘Carlow Castle – Medieval Stronghold on the Barrow’ by Dr. Margaret Murphy is available from Carlow County Museum.
Free Admission Carlow County Council Building, Athy Rd, Carlow Town.
Opening Hours: 09.30am – 5.00pm, Monday – Friday
