Today we feature Doe Castle in Co. Donegal by Joe Craig. He has captured it in stunning Autumnal colours. Joe explains:
"Doe Castle, or Caisleán na dTuath, at Sheephaven Bay near Creeslough, County Donegal, was historically a stronghold of Clan Suibhne, with architectural parallels to the Scottish tower house. Built in the 16th century, it is one of the better preserved fortalices in the north-west of Ireland. It was here that Owen Roe O'Neill returned in 1642 to lead the Irish Confederate Army during the Wars of the three kingdoms."
The scene captured here almost looks like a pastel painting. This print is available from €45. You can browse or buy Joe Craig's prints here.
