Description In 1786 Wilson refers to "the ancient castle of Clare-Galway, the seat of Michael French". Both the 1st edition and 25-inch edition indicate that the original tower house was in ruins but extensive adjacent buildings are shown on the 25-inch map. At the time of Griffith's Valuation, it was part of Lord Clanmorris's estate and was leased to Patrick Reilly when the buildings were valued at over £5. The castle is still extant and undergoing a programme of renovation.
