Kilkea Castle was built in 1180 and is the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Ireland. The immediate builder and the first occupier was one Sir Walter de Riddlesford, a young knight who had accompanied the first invasion party of Anglo/Normans in 1170. From his name he was probably of Anglo/Saxon, rather than Norman stock, but was reputed to be a relation of the King's. Apart from building Kilkea. however, he played no other prominent part in history and the family in fact died out in the third generation.
