Hill of Tara - Located in Trim, it is embraced as the spiritual capital of Ireland; roots of Irish legend and folklore are entrenched in the mystical domain in Tara. It was at the Hill of Tara that the Ard Ri or High King was crowned, hence its title as the Seat of the High Kings of Ireland.

Carbury Castle - They were originally a Norman family from England who came over with Strongbow. In the 15th century it was taken by the native Irish and in 1562 it was granted to the Colley Family. They were the ancestors of the dukes of Wellington.

Arthur Pomeroy, who later became Lord Haberton, obtained the lands of Newberry through marriage to Mary Colley in 1747. The Colley family were at this time living in Carbury Castle. It appears that the castle was abandoned in the late 1700’s. T

The Castle of Carbury is an interesting ruin, which is situated on the summit of a hill. Conflicting histories exist regarding the history of the castle. It was probably built in the 14th century by the de Bermingham Family who owned extensive lands on the Kildare / Offaly border. The castle dates from 1711.
