Bartle D'Arcy
Knights & Conquests Granard Motte

Learn about Norman history from inside the Knights & Conquests Exhibition beneath the highest motte in Ireland through story telling and artifact show and tell with heritage guide and centre manager Bartle D'Arcy. Find out how the motte was built and for what purpose by Richard de Tuite in 1199 and how Norman people lived, worked and fought before becoming more Irish than the Irish themselves. Early on in the invasion in 1171 Maurice FitzGerald hit the nail on the head saying: "Just as we are English to the Irish we are Irish to the English". www.knightsandconquests.ie
