Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Castlerea is located in the west of County Roscommon, Ireland. It is the second largest town in the county with a population of 2,842 (as of 2006). Roughly translated from Irish, Castlerea can mean Brindled Castle or King's Castle. The town is built on the River Suck and the River Francis, both tributaries of the River Shannon. Clonalis House, just west of the town, is the ancestral home of the Clan O'Conor: the last High Kings of Ireland. The dynasty gave eleven high kings to Ireland and twenty four kings to Connacht. The family traces back to Feredach the Just in 75 A.D. and is Europe's oldest recorded family. The 45 room mansion was built in 1878 and contains a priceless collection of archival material, illustrating a tradition going back 60 generations.show more
