Knockdrin Castle

One summer in the mid-1970s, there was a knock on the great oak front door of Knockdrin Castle in Mullingar, Co Westmeath. The current owner, Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski, then in his twenties and studying at Trinity, opened the door to find an American couple outside. They were castle buffs who had read about the neo-Gothic pile and decided to tip up on a whim.

Could they, they asked, have a look around? Ferdinand obliged, and they came to a halt at the bottom of the great oak staircase that is one of the castle's show pieces.
