Killaghy Castle The O'Dwyers' late 16th century strong-house at Killenure has been a roofless shell since the mid 17th century after the devastating wars of that period. It is unusual in that its defensive towers are circular instead of the more conventional square or spear-head shape. The O'Dwyer family's castle at Killenure was just one of several in the district used in the defence of the barony of Kilmanagh, whose clan chief ruled from the castle at Dundrum. In the 1630s Killenure was occupied by Charles O'Dwyer of Cullynuer 'Irish Papist' according to the Civil Survey of 1654. After the wars of the 1640s and 50s Kilmanagh was left totally devastated, and it is likely Killenure Castle would have been a ruin at this time. Those like the O'Dwyers who had taken a major role in the rebellion of 1641 were to be totally dispossessed and their ancestral lands distributed to (for example) many of the soldiers of the Crown as payment for their services. There is some uncertainty as to who became the new owners, but by the mid-C18 it is thought the Coppinger family were in possession, who rebuilt the old house attached to the castle ruin as a hunting lodge. The Cooper family were next to occupy Killenure when William Cooper settled here with his new wife in 1747. He would establish a family dynasty of Coopers at Killenure that endured for the next 200 years. The current owners, an artist and a designer bought it in 2007, and have commenced a venture that includes opening Killenure to the public.
