Description
Castle Richard is situated on farmland off the N25 south of the village of Killeag

The castle, also known as Inchicrenagh, is a five storey ruined tower house, standing over 65 feet high.

History
Castle Richard was probably built around the 1430s by Richard FitzGerald, the first seneschal of Imokilly. The castle may have been modified around 1592, as that date is on a doorway on the northern wall, along with the initials of Thomas Fitzgerald.
