Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Castletownroche is a village on the N72 National secondary road in County Cork, Province of Munster, Ireland. In ancient times, it was known in Irish as D n Chruadha, meaning Cruadha's Fort. Castletownroche is located on the River Awbeg in the Blackwater Valley about eight miles (13 km) from Mallow. The first historical record about Castletownroche is from the late 13th century when the Anglo-Norman family of Roache established a fortress here. They were descendants of Richard FitzGodebert (Richard, son of Godebert) who came with Strongbow to Ireland. Their family had a castle in Pembrokeshire that was built upon a outcrop of stone and they became known as FitzGodebert de la Roch.show more
