ANTRIM CASTLE 3788
This photograph was taken long after October 1922 when during a great Ball when an arsonist (a servant at the castle) lit a fire underneath the grand staircase and deliberately made sure there was no water in the big holding tanks which where in the loft area. It did not take long for the whole Castle to be enveloped in flames when they heard screams coming from one of the first floor windows. It was Ethel one of the servants, they quickly got a ladder and very soon got Ethel to safety but by the time the ambulance arrived it was too late, Ethel had not been burned by the fire but sadly had died due to smoke inhalation. In the foreground you can see a gate and an entrance which most likely had steps and was probably used by the servants, further on part of the wall has collasped for the council at the time did nothing to secure the Castle. Even though in this sad state it was a great attraction for it had been magnificent. Just beyond the fallen wall is a main door for the upper class to come out through and take in the wonderful views including the Sixmilewater River. Eventually the Castle got into a dangerous state because it had not been looked after that Antrim Borough Council at the time own Archiect ordered it to be bulldozed down and all that remains is the Octagon Tower. To be fair the the Council of today have worked hard at turning the Castle grounds into a place of beauty and has won many awards and worth going to see.
ANTRIM CASTLE 3789
This is Antrim Castle many years after it was deliberately set on fire. Above the front door are the coats of arms of the Ferrard's and the Massereene's and even in this sad state it was still attracting many visitors as you can see by the car on the left. To the right is the Motte from where at the top the last cannon ball was fired fired during the Battle of Antrim in 1798.

As it was 1941 and the Second World War was still ongoing you still had the blackout curfews at night. It you look closely at the headlight on the left
you will see it has a cover on it with slats that pointed downward to reflect the light, this meant not much light came out of them and so they then painted
a white strip on the mudguards of the car to help other motorists to see you.
