Leamaneh Castle/Leim an Eich (The Stallion’s Leap), Co. Clare-Built in the late 1400’s and expanded in the 1640’s. It is located 12 miles north of Ennis. It was the home of Maire ‘Rua’ (Red Mary) McMahon-O’Brien and her husband Conor O’Brien. Red (flaming red hair) Mary is considered to be the last of the great Irish Warrior Queens. By the time of her death in 1686 she outlived 3 husbands but managed to hold onto Leamaneh Castle through very turbulent times.
