House & Family History: Castle Taylor was a large, plain tower-house with 18th century tracery windows, stepped battlements, and a curved bow at one end. In the early 19th century a three-story house was added to the existing 18th century house. In the early 20th century Castle Taylor was home to John Shawe-Taylor, a prominent figure in the Irish Revival movement. Michael Shawe-Taylor (John's son) sold the House in the late 1930s or early 1940s. Castle Taylor was demolished after the Shawe-Taylor family sold up.
