View of Ballyhooly Castle, County Cork. It is sometimes known as Appleford Castle after a legend that an oak tree blossomed and grew apples after Saint Patrick tried to convert the local population. The castle was built by William, the son of Lord Roche, in 1314. A warrant dating from the Elizabethan period describes the castle thus,
“…being strongly built on the Broadwater and containing 42x34 ft. being in height four storeys, double vaulted and covered with thatch, as yet scarce finished… On the entry to the case there is a door of iron, double chained and strong for defence.’
