Historic Castle Trails

Prior to the arrival of the Normans in 1169, castles were built in Ireland of timber. The new invaders began the erection of stone and mortar castles in the late 12th and early 13th century and most of the military style castles were built before the mid 14th century. Tower houses appeared in the 15th, 16th and early 17th centuries, and were seen as the fortified residences of the Anglo Irish and Irish gentry.

Christianity & Spirituality

Monastic foundations appear in Ireland from the 6th century onwards. Ecclesiastic sites in the early Christian period ranged from great monastic cities to small isolated hermitages with a range of lesser monasteries and church sites with some affiliated to the monasteries.  Holy wells were venerated and in some instances cross slabs were erected near wells with crosses inscribed on some of the ogham stones. With the coming of the Normans to Kerry in 1177, new religious orders were introduced. It was only after the Norman conquest that the territorial, diocesan, and parochial system on which the church in medieval and post medieval Ireland was organized, fully took shape.
