OBJECTID: 61641 Monument Identifier: KE02741 Classification: UNCA Irish Grid Easting: 69862 Irish Grid Northing: 109154 RMP_PROP: 1 County ID: 12 WebNotes: Camp Castle: Possibly built by a branch of the FitzGeralds (Coleman 1909, 152-3), the castle is now represented only by a low mound and some random mortared masonry. Grass-grown wall foundations adjoining the mound may be the remains of ancillary buildings. The site has changed little since the 19th century (OSNB Kilgobban, 48). The castle was located in a commanding position, overlooking Tralee Bay to the North.
The above description is derived from J. Cuppage, ‘Corca Dhuibhne. Dingle Peninsula archaeological survey. Ballyferriter. Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne’ (1986), no. 1002. In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research.
