Castle Raw

Castle Raw, also known as Castleraw, lies in the countryside east of the village of Loughgall, west of the town of Portadown, in County Armagh, in Northern Ireland.

Castle Raw was probably built in 1618-19 by Anthony Cope. That is about all the historical info I was able to find about this castle. If you know more, please mail me.

The castle appears to have been a 3 storied fortified house in cruciform shape built within a square entrenchment. The ruins comprise a semi-basement and 2 upper floors. Only the northern wall of the western wing now stands to approximately original height, the rest of the walling being largely reduced to foundations. The remains are very much overgrown.

The ruins of Castle Raw are situated at the corner of a field and can easily be viewed from the road.

This is one for die hard castle fans like me I guess.
