Do you know the legend of Castle Roche? This beautiful castle, perched amidst the verdant greenery of County Louth, was once home to a beautiful maiden. She promised her hand in marriage to any man who built her a castle on the hill overlooking her lands. Men flocked from around the country to fulfil her wish, and the maiden made her selection. Shortly after the young man completed the castle, they were wed in a lavish ceremony. The bride took her new husband to the top of the castle, to a window where he could look over the lands he now owned by her side. Feeling her hand upon his shoulder, he turned to kiss her... and she pushed him from the window, where he plummeted to his death. A grisly tale for a beautiful castle.
