Lackeen Castle Lorrha


Republic of Ireland

This Castle was built in the 12th Century and rebuilt in the 16th Century by John O'Kennedy. In the process of rebuilding the Stowe Missal, a 9th Century Mass Book, was found. The Castle stands in a bawn and is surrounded by the remains of a high wall, now part of a farmyard. To the east of the Castle is a fine example of a Cromwellian farmhouse. The Castle is situated three miles east of Lorrha village and is still in remarkably good condition and well worth a visit.
