The Story

Set in Ireland in 1948, Castle Gillian tells the story of Gill Morris, a young man damaged by his experiences in the WWII, who regains his faith in love and the world as he fights to save his ancestral home – and racing stable – Castle Gillian.

Castle Gillian is a story of how love, hope and courage can heal the wounds of the past – and make miracles happen.
