Castles of Munster: Togher, Cork
Castles of Munster: Togher, Cork
This was a MacCarthy castle or tower house, built in about 1590; the MacCarthy family crest is still visible in the entrance hall. Various alterations and additions during its occupation in the C19 resulted in enlarged window openings, diamond shaped chimneys, and more recently a corrugated iron roof that will at least help to preserve the structure.
