Rockfleet Castle

20th May 2012
Another picture from last week . This is Rockfleet Castle one of Granuaile,s castles, , where Grainne lived for many years. Grainne was Ireland's Pirate Queen and was a real thorn in the side of the English, so much so that in 1574 they sent a force under Captain William Martin to Rockfleet and laid siege to the castle which lasted 15days but in the end Grainne managed to defeat this force and sent them packing!!
