Welcome

This is a 'sub' website that deals with Clonreher Castle near Portlaoise in County Laois in Ireland.  There appears to be some grounds to believe it was once inhabited by Dowlings in the 16th century.

Note the subsite is under reconstruction so please be patient for a few days.

The castle or 'tower house' is in poor condition but has recently become of more interest to Heritage Ireland and is undergoing an examination to assess its importance and viability for renovation.

LATEST: The archaeology survey has started! Surveyors attended to start work on the survey on 20 July 2022.
