Spent most of today exploring Geopark sites in Cavan. As part of work. Yes. Work! 💚 This is Killykeen Forest Park and it’s just a magical setting with a special, tranquil vibe about it. Not to mention the spectrum of tones and colours in the trees. Happy Out. .

Love Ireland
1 d  ·

Every castle in Ireland has a story to tell, and Clough Oughter Castle in County Cavan is no different! In what was historically known as the kingdom of Breifne, this castle saw ownership being passed and fought over for centuries by two main clans, the O’Rourkes and the O’Reillys. During these feuds, the castle also often filled the role of a prison or a fortress. It finally fell to cannon fire from enemies in the 17th century, and was never rebuilt.

Drumlane Abbey

Located just outside the village of Milltown, County Cavan on a beautiful site overlooking Garfinny Lough,  the intriguing monastic site of Drumlane includes an abbey, a monastery and a remarkably intact round tower constructed in the year 555AD.

Although the monastery is closely affiliated to St. Mogue, it is believed the site was constructed some time before his arrival and most likely by St. Colmcille. The circular round tower, which stands next to the Abbey at Drumlane is remarkably intact and is recognised as the only surviving round tower of its kind in the dioceses of Kilmore. Round towers were built throughout Ireland between the 5th and 13th centuries. Interpretation and parking are available on site.
