Leamaneh Castle, the Burren, County Clare. This was originally constructed as a tower house in the late 15th century by Turlough O’Brien. He built it at a vital junction at the beginning of the ancient routeway that traverses the Burren from north-south. In around 1648, Conor O’Brien and his wife Mary McMahon (known as Máire Rua for her flame-red hair), constructed this palatial four-storey fortified house in the fashion of the time.
