Ferrycarrig castle
This castle on the northern bank of the Slaney is described by several sources as a fifteenth century tower house built by the Roaches on the North side of the river to guard the ferry and the river passage. See Myth and Legends LinkExternal link and Inland Waterways of Ireland history of the River Slaney LinkExternal link. The Normans built a castle in 1169 on the south bank of the river, where there is now a round tower as a war memorial.
