dc.descriptionThe following quotation is from 'Ireland Illustrated' accompanying this engraving: "This ancient structure was erected by Cormac McCarty, about 1449. It stands upon a pedestal of solid rock, is embosomed in luxuriant woods, and the smooth river of Blarney flows close to the tower. In 1646 it was besieged and taken by Lord Broghill, and the proprietor, Lord Muskerry, held it for James II.; but upon his surrender, the fortifications were demolished, and only part of the ancient building permitted to remain was one large tower, the walls of which are eighteen feet in thickness. A modern mansion has been attached to this fine relique of antiquity, and the demensne and adjacent grounds, now the property of ----- Jefferies, Esq., are in the highest state of perfection."
