This Castle is built beside a little river that was a ford between 3 kingdoms, which is how the town got its name, Athenry is one of the few remaining walled towns in Ireland that still has the existing walls running around the town complete with towers. The castle was built by Meiller De Bermingham and was built around 1250. I am embarrassed to say I do not know more and will have to find out more as I pass this every day.
