Clonshire More Castle

Map Reference: R423447 (1423, 1447)

This castle stands close to Clonshire Bridge. A tall tower rises at one end of a lower and wider building. The tower houses a spiral stairway and has some good slit windows, one with a slopstone. There are no machicolations or murder-hole. The lower section rises to four storeys with a good two-light window with ogee head at the third storey. The ground floor room is vaulted. To the right of the doorway there may have been another section of building two storeys high. This is indicated by marks on the wall and two doorways, one leading from the ground floor room and a second one from the stairway at first floor level. At the opposite end of the building are the remains of another two-storey section.
