“Blackwood is a very histor-ical place. There is an old castle there.”
Blackwood is a very historical place. There is an old castle there. While Cromwell was in Ireland he bombed the castle from the Hill of Graigues. This was one of his last events in Ireland. The ruins of this fine castle are still to be seen.
