Athlumney

Athlumney, which is situated on the east bank of the river Boyne, is home to Athlumney castle. Athlumney castle was built by the Dowdall family. When first built, it comprised of a mid fifteenth century tower house, it was then enlarged in the 1630’s by the adding on of a mansion.

In 1649 when Cromwell was attacking Drogheda, the Maguires, who occupied the castle, set fire to it to prevent Cromwell from getting any shelter there. Nearby are the ruins of a 14th century manorial church with triple belfry.
