About Moy Gates and Screen

These gates mark the entrance to the now-vanished Roxborough Castle. Between stone end-pillars are curving screens, openwork columns, and pedestrian and carriage gates, all of elaborate cast iron, the best surviving example of their type in Northern Ireland. Their exact date is uncertain, but they may be the work of the celebrated Dublin iron founder, Richard Turner, who is known to have worked at Roxborough in the mid 19th century. This cast ironwork should be contrasted with the wrought iron Richhill Gates at Hillsborough.
