Castles Famous People Own, 1

“Manderley Castle,” Killiney, Ireland:

1. Enya added 4 feet of height to the wall when she moved in.
2. She bought it out from under Michael Flatley, who was “also interested.”
3. Previously called “Ayesha Castle,” named such after a character in the 1886 serial story “She,” the character in question being “She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed.” This story is credited with being the inception of “Lost World” stories.
5. My favorite Enya song is “Storms In Africa.” :0
