Rossmore Castle Rebuilt
Monaghan County Museum has worked on a cross border basis with Amma Creative Learning Centre in Armagh to bring Rossmore Castle and the Park surrounding it into the virtual world of Minecraft. Rossmore Castle was demolished in 1974 but this new, innovative project has rebuilt the castle through the Microsoft Minecraft game and will allow us to once again walk through it’s regal halls as well as exploring the incredible stories that Rossmore Park has to offer. For more information on this new and exciting project watch the video below and follow this link www.ammacentre.org/rossmore
This project was funded through the Creative Ireland programme.
