Ringrone Castle, County Cork, Ireland
This is all that’s left of a 13th century castle located on a hill overlooking the river Bandon, south of the town of Kinsale. The castle was built on land granted to Milo de Cogan by Henry II. In the fall of 1600, Ringrone was held by Spanish forces but the castle was taken by the English during the Seige of Kinsale, after a brutal attack with cannons. All that is left of the castle today is a fragment of a four-storey tower.
