Castles of Munster: Creagh, Cork (1)
This six storey Roche tower lies close to an early C19 house in a lush setting above the Awbeg river. It was originally called Crogh, which is Irish for saffron, hence its alternative name of Castlesaffron, which is also the name of the townland. It was renamed in the C18 after passing to the Creagh family, having previously been owned by the Nagles, Rigg's and Loves since the 1690s.

The house also called Creagh Castle was built in c.1730, destroyed by fire in c.1775, and rebuilt in 1816 retaining its original facade.
