A two storey block and an attic forms but a part of a complex of buildings erected on a cliff overlooking the River Blackwater in the early 17c by Caher O'Callaghan. Due to a bull in the field, I was unable to get closer, but apparently this is the fortified house marked on the OS map. Another block of three storeys lies hidden in the trees, whose dramatic outlines are surprisingly more visible from the main N72 Mallow road that lies further north.
