This recording was made in the room which was always known to Frank Kavanagh as the ‘Haunted Room’ in the castle. Frank spoke about his early days working as a messenger boy, and of finding work in Kilkenny Castle in 1964. Since then he has witnessed the restoration, conservation and protection of this fine castle and its grounds in Kilkenny City. Frank also records the fact that the Butler family were very happy with the restoration of the castle.
