dc.description'Carrigafoyle Castle was built in 1490 by the O'Connor chieftains who came to the area around 1200 making Carrigafoyle their power-base. The castle was strongly built and ingeniously situated on Carrig Island. On Palm Sunday, 1580, the O'Connor fortunes were dealt a near fatal blow, besieged by Elizabethan forces, the castle was breached by canon fire and its inhabitants massacred. Finally subjugated by Cromwellian forces, the castle was abandoned and forfeited in 1660.' (www.ballylongford.com)en
