Weekly Photo Challenge: More Up

Carrigafoyle Castle Ruin, western side.

After seeing the quay side of Carrigafoyle Castle ruin, I thought readers might like to see the rest of it. This is the front or western side of the castle, battered open in a siege by Sir William Pelham in 1580.  The five-story castle is located between the high and low water marks of the Shannon estuary, making it difficult to get to at times.  It is indeed one of the more impressive ruins I saw in Ireland. 

Carrigafoyle Castle: Note the muddy ground at the castle’s edge, accessible only at low tide.
