In the same vicinity as St. Tóla's Church is Dysert O'Dea Castle, which was badly damaged by Oliver Cromwell in 1651 but has been repaired and serves as an archeological center.



The Emerald Isle


The ruins of Leamaneh Castle are located in the stark setting of The Burren in County Clare and the castle was a multi-storied tower house built circa 1480, probable by Turlogh Donn, one the last of the high Kings of Ireland and was surrended to Henry VIII in 1548 by Torlogh Donn's son, Murrough.

The cross is located on the grounds of O'Dea Castle and the battle of Dysert O'Dea Castle drove the Anglo-Normans from this region for over two hundred years and took place on the site on the Tenth of May in 1318.
