Trim Castle

€2.60

Built in the late 12th Century, Trim Castle is an imposing building and is also known as King John’s castle although King John (the king of the Robin Hood legends) never actually stepped foot inside its walls. The story goes that Walter de Lacey who resided in the castle was under suspicion of disloyalty by the King who arrived with a sizeable army of men. Walter however, had recently strengthened the castle’s defences and rather than face the King in battle, instead, locked the doors and abandoned his residence. King John was unable to gain entry and camped outside till finally an agreement was reached between the two parties.
