Carrigahowley Castle

By chazcherry
Carrigahowley Castle, Co Mayo with some indulgence.

A fine 15th or 16th century tower beautifully situated beside an inlet of Clew Bay. it has four storeys and a corner turret, as well as a fireplace on the top floor. It is said to have been besieged by an expedition sent from Galway in 1574, but the invasion was driven off by Grace O'Malley who lived there after the death of her second husband, Sir Richard Burke, in 1583. She retired to the castle with 'all her own followers and 1,000 head of cows and mares'.

Great pic, I love the detail and pattern in the foreground, I would have liked a bit more definition in the Tower (personal choice) is that a little girl/boys face in the texture on the side of the tower?
