Castles of Munster: Dromagh, Cork (1)
A bawn wall with four circular corner flankers once the principal seat of the O'Keefes now encloses a farmyard. It is said that this once contained a five storey tower house captured by Cromwell in 1652. In the mid C18 it was occupied by the Philpots, then the Leaders who remodelled it into a fine country house with outbuildings. Of their time are the central gateways in the east and west sides, the crenellations, and the upper parts of the flankers complete with fireplaces and windows. It has remained derelict since a fire in 1920.
