Fergus


 

Carrickfergus castle is the best preserved Norman castle in Ireland.

For 800 years, it has dominated the entrance to Belfast lough and it has seen off attacks from the Scots, Irish and English.  Even the French had a go at it.  You will also hear how the Irish chieftain, Con O’Neill, made a dramatic jail-break from Carrickfergus castle in 1602, an event that helped bring about the Ulster-Scots settlement of North Down and Ards.
