Manorhamilton Castle
The castle was built as a baronial mansion during the plantation of Leitrim by Sir Frederick Hamilton in 1634.

Hamilton proved to be a tyrant, noted for his cruelty to prisoners, many of whom he is known to have publicly hanged. After sustained rebellion the Castle was burned to the ground in 1652 by the native Irish, although not before Hamilton had taken the opportunity to burn Sligo town. more at LinkExternal link
