Coppingerstown Castle

Coppingerstown Castle lies south east of the town of Midleton, in County Cork in Ireland.

I was not able to find any historical information about this castle. Other than that it was probably built by the Cotter family or the FitzGeralds. During the Commonwealth period in the mid-17th century the head of the Coppingerstown Cotters was William, son of Edmond, whose principal residence was Coppingerstown Castle.

What remained was a corner of a tower of some 4 storeys high. Around the tower are some derelict buildings and the area seemed to be used as a field for two very curious donkeys.

In January 2016 I was notified by a visitor of this website; she told me that the tower ruin had collapsed, probably due to severe weather, and was reduced to a pile of rubble, some 3 meters high. She sent me the picture of this tower's sad end.

This was a nice tower ruin on private land, so not accessible.
