C15 Kilcoe Castle on the island of Mannin Beg is now linked to the mainland by a modern causeway built in 1978 before the mammoth six year restoration of 1998 - 2004. Overlooking Roaringwater Bay, this 5 storey tower of the Clan Dermot branch of the MacCarthy Riabhach was besieged and attacked by various forces during 1600-1602. It finally fell in February 1603 when its garrison surrendered to Captain Flower.
