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. 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.
