Callan Motte, in Callan county Kilkenny, is around 12m high and over 40m long. A wooden tower is long gone from the top. It was built around 1217 when the town of Callan was chartered. It is said that Cromwell positioned cannons on it during the ill fated siege of Callan in 1650. The Callan Motte is best viewed from the new bypass.
