The history of Ballingarry Castle is later than the period covered on the ‘ de Lacy Irish Castles’ pages, a better following of the history of the Irish de Lacy family and the castle forms an important part of ‘The Grey years’ page.
An original Motte & Bailey castle, with de Lacy records back to early 14th century. Possibly improved as a stone walled castle by one of the three de Lacy Barons created by Hugh de Lacy Lord of Meath. The castle continues to be referred to as ‘the de Lacy Castle’.
Main Street, Ballingarry, Co. Limerick, Ireland.
