Liscarroll

Liscarroll is a village in County Cork, Ireland whose name comes from the Irish Lios Cearuill (Carroll’s Fort). The village is located near Mallow and Buttevant about two miles south of River Awbeg.

Liscarroll Castle

The remains of Liscarroll Castle, a large 13th century Hiberno-Norman fortress, still towers over the village.

The castle is the subject of an 1854 poem by Callaghan Hartstonge Gayner which concludes:

Beneath its folds assemble now, and fight with might and main,
That grand old fight to make our land 'A nation once again',
And falter not till alien rule in dark oblivion falls,
We’ll stand as freemen yet, beneath those old Liscarroll walls.

Liscarroll Fort

Also in the area is Liscarroll Fort, a ringfort some 30 m diameter which dates to between the 5th and 10th century. It is the burial place of almost twenty members of the FitzGerald/FitzPierce family killed in the Battle of Liscarroll in 1642.
