Built in 1820,‘Coltsmann’s Castle’, or Flesk Castle, Killarney, Karl O’Mahony, Architect and John Knightly gave a tour of the Castle on Sunday, as part of Kerry County Council’s Kerry’s architectural heritage  the focus of the inaugural Architecture Kerry festival this weekend. The Castle is recorded monument & protected structure which has been in ruins since it was abandoned in the mid 1940’s. With the storms of recent years knocking some of the surrounding mature trees & the coinciding works on site we are privileged to be bringing Flesk back to life as it re-emerges in the landscape and local consciousness.
The O’Reilly family, with Killarney Connections,  bought Flesk in 2005 and carried out a clean-up to get beyond the layers of rubble and undergrowth.Photo:Valerie O’Sullivan/FREE PIC
