End of The Empire: Famine, the Land War, the Easter Rising, the War of Independence, and then the Civil War: the 19th and 20th centuries were a time of great change. Some of Ireland's most prestigious and historical castles were mostly abandoned or destroyed. The final episode details the condition of Irish castles during these periods of unrest and features the stately home of Castle Leslie.
