Appraisal

The building is a roofless shell. None of the original fabric remains other than the external walls. It is suffering from structural problems that could lead to full or partial collapse, and there is an immediate threat of further deterioration.

Louth Hall is a medieval tower with substantial mid 18th century house added by the Plunkett Family and abandoned in the mid 20th century. It became neglected and fire damaged which resulted in it turning to its current shell state. The structure is of significant historic importance and requires conservation works to prevent further deterioration.
