Dundonald, Co Down, Northern Ireland. (My hometown!)
Dundonald refers to a 12th century Norman fort, or Dún, Dún Dónaill, that stood in the town. One of the largest in Ireland, the man-made hill that the fort stood on is still in existence.
Although the mound is commonly referred to as ‘the moat’ this is, in fact, a corruption of the word ‘motte’ and refers to the fact that this defensive structure was built in the style of a motte and bailey. St. Elizabeth’s Church is located beside the moat, with the Cleland Mausoleum in the adjacent graveyard.
