Ballyfinboy Castle, Borrisokane, County Tipperary:

Historic Irish Castle, built around 1480, located on around  2.5 acres of land, with the Ballyfinboy river forming the boundary to the north.

The castle is located about a mile from  Borrisokane; and near Lough Derg and Killaloe, which are on the River Shannon just 12 minutes drive from Nenagh from where there is access to the N7 main Dublin/Limerick Road. Limerick City and Shannon Airport are within easy commuting distance also

This ruinous Castle was constructed by the O’Kennedy Clan in 1480.

There is an original carving of a Sheila NaGig on the south east corner about

5 metres above the ground.

The first recorded mention of the castle is to its capture  and that was on St. Bridgets Day 1599.

The owner Phillip Kennedy and defenders were all put to the sword and the castle left indefensible.

Before famine times the castle was described as being a ruin in a good state of preservation.
