Dough Castle Ruins - Lahinch - Ireland

It is a shattered tower-house standing awkwardly on single wall four storeys high, the other walls fell at various stages during the 19th century. It was built by the O'Connors in 1306. Its old name "Dumhach Ui Chonchuir" would translate as O'Connor's Sandbank and it was an O'Connor stronghold until they were ousted by the O'Briens in the days of Queen Elizabeth 1 of England. It is referred to in 1422 but none of the present ruin dates from that period. (
