Welcome to the website of Moygara Castle research project. We have formed this research group to carry out a detailed architectural and historical study of this clearly complex Castle, which functioned as the centre of the late medieval O’Gara Lordship of Coolavin.

This involves architectural, historical and geophysical research over the next three years. Since we have commenced last October, we have successfully been grant aided by the heritage council, Sligo County Council and local funding and for this we are very grateful.

In 2006 we have commissioned an architectural and an extensive photographical survey of the castle and surrounding area, all of which can be accessed through this site.

We hope to continue our work in late 2006 with a historical study of the castle. The geophysical survey will be carried out in 2007. Please enjoy browsing through the site and if you have any questions or would like to support us, please do not hesitate to contact us via email.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped us achieve our goals this year and we look forward to the challenges in the years ahead.
