Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ardrahan is a village in County Galway, Ireland. Richard de Brugo conquered Galway in 1236, and granted the land to Maurice Fitzgerald who built the castle whose ruins still stand today. The churchyard wall contains the remains of a round tower, which suggests that a monastic community may have existed on the site before the castle was built. The most noteworthy attraction in Ardrahan is Tullira Castle, once owned by playwright and independence activist Edward Martyn. Tullira Castle is private property.show more
