An English force of 4,000 surrounded the castle in 1602 and the O’Sullivan clan blew up the castle rather than surrender. Close by is Puxley’s Castle, once home to the Puxley family who made their fortunes from copper mining. Their story provided the inspiration for Daphne du Maurier’s novel ‘Hungry Hill’. The house was destroyed during the civil war of the 1920’s.
