Investigation Underway After Damage Caused To Protected Structure In North Wicklow

An investigation has been launched by the National Monuments Service at the Department of Heritage after substantial damage was caused to Oldcourt Castle in Bray

A large hole was made in one of the external walls of the protected structure, which dates back to the 1430’s.

Wicklow TD John Brady has described the damage a mindless act of vandalism. 

He’s called on Wicklow County Council to inspect the castle, to assess what work is needed to protect the structure from further damage.
