Castles of Connacht: Kinlough, Mayo
This tower by the Black River is thought to be a C13 structure, although the additional two storeys with corner fireplaces that were subsequently added to it, date from a remodelling in 1574, probably by Sir John MacOliver Burke. There are gunloops in the massive battered base, and the entrance has a drawbar slot. The castle was mortgaged to the Blakes in 1629, and leased by them to John Darcy in 1668.
