Artist's Description

Doonagore Castle is a round 16th-century tower house with a small walled enclosure and is located about 1Km above the coastal village of Doolin in County Clare. It was constructed in the 16th century for for Sir Turlough O’Brien of Ennistymon (a neighboring town). The castle gained infamy during the retreat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 from its failed attempt to invade England when 150 survivors of the shipwreck were captured by the higth sheriff of Clare Boetius MacClancy and were hanged in the castle grounds. It is presently a private holiday home and is inaccessible to the public
