Castle MacAuliffe
Castlemacauliffe was the principal castle of the McAuliffes but has been totally demolished. The site is still identifiable but for anyone hoping to see the remains of a castle the sight would be depressing, for almost nothing remains save the ground on which it stood. The photos on this page were taken during a visit in 2008.
