Over the past year myself and some family members have been visiting some of the local landmarks and ruins in our part of Ireland.  Here's Castle Roche.  It's a 13th century Norman fortress built by Lady Verdun. Local legend says that she promised to marry the architect who could design and build her the finest castle in the area and when the castle was completed, on their wedding night, she took him to the highest window in the castle to enjoy the view, and pushed him out the window to his death so that no-one would know the secrets of her fortress or be able to built a better one.  It was eventually abandoned and left to ruin during the Cromwellian invasion of Ireland.

Here are a few pics of Dun Aonghus - a pre-historic fort found on Inish Mor off the western coast of Ireland (53 07 47.91 N 9 46 44.28 W on Google Earth)  The fort is believed to have been built sometime in the 2nd century BC...
