Description Originally a Fitzgerald Castle, subsequently granted to the Duke of Richmond who sold it to John Croker in 1721. Reverend Fitzgerald writes that Croker was agent to the Duke. A residence was built with some of the stone from the old castle. Situated on the outskirts of the town of Croom this house was occupied by Samuel A. Dickson in the mid 19th century who held it from the Crokers. The buildings were valued at £30. Sold in the late 1880s to the Lyons family and bought by Michael Corry in 1936. Now functions as self catering accommodation. see http://www.croomcastle.com/history.html
