Carrigafoyle Castle


The stunning Carrigafoyle Castle can be found two miles north of Ballylongford in the channel between the mainland and Carrig Island.
The Castle was besieged in 1580 by Sir William Pelham for two days, during which it was heavily bombarded and destroyed.
All the occupants who survived, comprising nineteen Spanish and fifty Irish were massacred.
