Raphoe Castle, sometimes referred to as the Bishop’s Palace was built in the 1630’s by the Bishop of Raphoe. It has seen its share of action over the years in troubled times, and is now a ruin. The stone used to build it came from a ruined round tower. Standing on top of a small, grassy hill, with scattered trees around it, it is a great location for photography.
I went inside, where the ruins towering above, and the scattered stone on the ground, clearly fallen from above, encouraged me to get a few shots as quickly as possible and get out before being crushed!
It was more comfortable being outside.
Looking over towards the town.
A last look back as I left.
