McDermott’s Castle

McDermott’s Castle

Welcome to McDermott Castle, Ireland. McDermott’s Castle is located in Roscommon County in Lough Key, 3 km northeast of Boyle City in Ireland.
 
With an extension of around 10 km wide and forming a rough circular form, Lough Key contains more than 30 islands scattered by its cold waters.
One of these islands is rightly called ‘Castle Island’ and this is where the ruins of McDermott Castle are located.
 
Local legend tells the story of a girl named Una, McDermott’s boss’s daughter, who fell in love with a lower class boy. Una’s father refused to let her leave the island, hoping this would deter the fledgling relationship.
 
Without her father knowing, Una’s boyfriend started swimming through Lough Key to get to the castle. It was during one of these crosses that the tragedy happened and the child drowned. It is said that Una died of pain and that both she and her partner have been buried under two trees intertwined on the island since then.
