Castles of Munster: Inchiquin, Cork
Castles of Munster: Inchiquin, Cork
This two storey circular tower beside a house by the Womanagh River was a possession of Richard de Clare at his death in 1321, and said to be worth nothing in 1350 owing to its state of disrepair. Renovation was eventually completed however, and much later it became the residence of the widow of the last Earl of Desmond until her death in 1604. Sir Richard Boyle was the owner at this time, having bought it in 1602 from Sir Walter Raleigh. The structure is said to have been damaged by Cromwellian cannon in 1649.
