Ormond Castle: A real life Game of Thrones

John McMahon, Commissioner of the OPW, opened the new exhibition in Ormond Castle in Carrick-on-Suir.

Ormond Castle is the greatest surviving great Tudor mansion in Ireland. Interpretation on-site includes tour guides, interactive books, newly commissioned Brussels tapestries and two audiovisuals in the style of Elizabethan woodcuts. They highlight the struggle to rule Ireland between three intertwined dynasties;- the Butlers; the Fitzgeralds; and the Tudors.

Still taken from one of the two audiovisual films produced for the museum.

Site models, interactive books and newly commissioned tapestries bring the story of  magnificently restored  Ormond Castle to life.
