Annaghkeen Castle

Map Reference: M207447 (1207, 2447)

Annaghkeen Castle may date from the early 14th century and in 1574 it was held by Moyler McReamon, a Burke. It consists of a rectangular keep, originally of two storeys with a later tower. The original doorway was at 1st floor level at the E end of the SE wall. There are traces of mural stairways in the NE wall, ascending to roof level, which is fragmentary. A three-storey tower containing latrines was added at the W end of the NW wall. It is vaulted above the ground and first floors and it may have been built at the same time as a third storey was added at the W end of the keep.
