|Rob and Tom's shadows at Ross Castle|
PICTURES- Since there was really not much to see at the castle, we took a couple of pictures outside. Tom came up with the shadow idea picture.

|Ross Castle- but we saw blue sky for 10 minutes!|
Because they knew their marriage wouldn't be allowed they did something dumb- they tried to elope by crossing (Lake) Lough Sheelin to run away. Of course, a storm blew up - as it did when we were visiting, tossed the boat over and Orwin drowned. Sabrina made it to the shore, however. So, she decided to starve herself and died in the castle. Now she haunts it. Another ghost is said to be there, too, although they may not see each other - that's her nasty father. (BTW- he likely stayed behind because his faith said that bad people can't cross over, which is not true -because they make amends on the other side- and he'll be there for eternity).
