Moyry Castle

Moyry Castle

Moyry Castle lies in the countryside south west of the village of Jonesborough, in County Armagh, in Northern Ireland.

Moyry Castle was built in 1601 by Lord Mountjoy during his northern campaign on a natural rocky hillock to secure the ancient natural route into Ulster through the strategic Moyry Pass (also known as Gap of the North).
