Minard Castle – (Caisleán Na Mináirde)
Mid 16th century Fitzgerald castle.
The castle ruins consist of a rectargular tower house, constructed from roughly dressed sandstone blocks laid in a strong mortar.
The strength of this castle was demonstrated when in 1650 Cromwell’s Army detonated charges at each of it’s corners, yet the castle still stood.
Dimensions: 15mm x 20mm (Approximate: hand cut)
