Bridge castle in Thurles

I’ve heard that Bridge castle (Barry’s castle) in Thurles was built by the Knights Templars but Archdall’s Monasticon Hibernicum credits the knights of St. John.

Either version is just a tradition. There are no accurate dates for the construction of the castle but the Urban Archaeological survey gives a mid 15th century date.
