Lemaneagh Castle aka Leamaneh Castle, former home of Maire Rua MacMahon (Red Mary) of Ireland. There were many stories about Maire Rua (Red Mary) of Ireland. Legend has it that she hung her disobedient men servants by the necks and her maids by the hair from Leamaneh Castle's corbels (stone brackets). She was also known to go with her husband on raids. The castle, an O'Brien stronghold, was granted to Donough O'Brien in 1550. Donough was hanged in 1552. Conor O'Brien inherited the property in the 1630s. Maire Rua MacMahon married Conor after her first husband died. They had eight children before he was killed by Cromwellian forces in 1651.
