//s3.amazonaws.com/photos.geni.com/p13/6a/4d/2a/b2/5344483ebb909c9b/ardfinnan_castle_original.jpg Ardfinnan Castle, Built in 1185, by John, Earl of Morton, afterwards King John, also built two other castles, - Lismore and Tibraghny. It was preserved as a military stronghold until 1649, when it was dismantled by Oliver Cromwell. Described as semi-ruined in 1861, it received a Victorian “restoration” when a three storey battlemented tower was added and the original castle received Irish battlements. Over the years it has been extended into a modest country house.
