The enclosure around the ruinous church at Tichroan.


In the area of Tichroan there are two interesting ruins. The most interesting is the church, enclosed in a D-shaped stone enclosure. Unfortunately there's no easy access to it. A long dirt path runs along a hedge, with 5 runs of barbed wire. We found a passage in the barbed wire and reached the enclosure.
The ruinous church within the stone enclosure is completely taken over by the thick vegetation, but it's still possible to see the nice south (180°) doorway and the two beautiful windows in the south and east walls.
Inside the church, in the ground, there's a small opening that might resemble the access to a crypt, but the space visible from the opening is very small and not too deep.

The Tichroan castle is only outlined on the ground, south of the enclosure. It was one of Owen Roe O'Neill's garrisons in 1640's. The forces from the Spanish Parliament attacked the castle in 1650. It had bastions and ramparts, but the castle itself no longer exist.
