Aughnanure Castle - County Galway, Ireland
Aughnanure Castle East View

Aughnanure Castle was built in County Galway, Ireland around 1500 and was the seat of the O'Flaherty clan. The tower is six stories high and features protruding bartizans on the eastern corners and machicolations on each side of the top.

The original castle had an inner and outer bailey. It was built on a rocky outcropping next to the Drimmeen River and was entered through a gatehouse on the western side.

The model is 25 x 37 1/2 inches ( 80 x 120 studs) and stands about 20 inches high.
