Reginald's Tower Plaque2

Deirtear gurb e Raghnall, Lochlannach, a thog
an tur 1003, ach d'fheadfadh se gur sa
12u aois a togadh an foirgneamh seo.
D'ionsaigh Richard fitz Gilbert (Strongbow) e 1170
agus d'ionsaigh Perkin Warbeck e 1497.
Bhi an tur ina dhunaras, ina armlann, ina mhuileann
airgid agus ina mhusaem i ndiaidh a cheile.

REGINALD'S TOWER

Said to have been erected in 1003 by Reginald the Dane,
but this building possibly dates from the 12th century.
Assaulted in 1170 by Richard FitzGilbert (Strongbow)
and in 1497 by Perkin Warbeck,
the tower has acted successively as Fortress,
Arsenal, Mint, Prison and museum.
