Three Castles and a little Folly

Little Island or Carrigenan Folly, a type of garden or estate ornament built by the gentry

Wallingstown castle- A Fitzgerald tower house

Barryscourt castle- the seat of the Barry family

Kilnatoora castle

The heavily overgrown entrance

Inside Kilnatoora castle, its lovely to take a stroll inside a castle like this by yourself, one of the reasons I prefer ruins than reconstructed touristy castles
Over the weekend I had a sketch wonder around sites in East Cork. Some lovely sites sitting around East Cork and its alot less trod on that west Cork as well
