Ballaghmore
Borris In Ossory
Laois
Republic of Ireland

Ballaghmore Castle is a unique and beautiful area located between Roscrea and Borris-in-Ossory in County Laois. Ballaghmore Castle was built in 1480 by the Gaelic chieftain Mac Giollaphadraig (now called Fitzpatrick), meaning son of the servant of Patrick. A sheela-na-gig carved in stone is on the front facing wall, a pagan fertility symbol to ward off evil.
