Mágh-Ui-Gadhra, Moygara or Moyogara
“On the northern slope of Mullaghatee, on a plateau which gently declines towards the lake, stands the Castle of Moygara, one of the very best examples in the County of Sligo of an ancient castellated building. It is rectangular in shape, the curtain walls enclosing a large lawn. On the west side was the dwelling, and there stood the entrance, in which the grooves for the portcullis still remain.”

“The castle of Moygara, in which the head of the O’Gara family resided, was a spacious and strong structure of 185 feet square”
