20/4/17…We finally got to Thoor bally Lee, the building is very impressive, the setting a revelation,despite the thousands of images online its only when you are on the ground that you see it has a moat,we were unable to get inside,so no images from or of the roof. Its not hard to understand Yeats draw to the Tower,it is a remote, idyllic, alternative country manor,with surrounding countryside full of game and a river with plenty of fish.
We gained images of colours, textures, proper orientation of the road and bridge with basic measurements. these along with the plans should give us all the data we need to create a realistic model. Its only a matter now of dividing the project into three and getting on with it. We’ll see how long the eagerness lasts…….
