View of the old Castle of Cork; sometimes known as Corkbeg Fort or Prince Rupert’s Tower. The tower stood high on the cliffs above Cork Harbour in Ireland. The original building on the site dates from c.1600 and was constructed by Roches. Prince Rupert, after whom the tower was named, was the nephew of King Charles I and was in command of a squadron of ships which operated off the south west coast of Cork.
