Castles of the Synans

The Synans were castle builders and very prominent land owners in the north of County Cork, which is in south of Ireland. Over a period of about one hundred fifty years the Synans built at least five castles in this region. The history of these castles and a description is documented in the book “The Castles of County Cork” by James N. Healy, Mercer Press, Cork and Dublin, 1988.
