Castlecreevy Castle is a 14th century medieval tower house located near Corrandulla village in Galway. This castle is believed to have been built by a lady called Craoibhín a’ Búrca, or Creeven Burke, who was the subject of much of the folklore associated with this townland. According to legend, she was a fierce and independent woman who defended her castle from invaders and suitors alike.
Other legends and folklore have it that gold is also buried under the foundations of Castlecreevy Castle. Today, the castle is now very much in ruins, but in the more recent past it was believed that some of the remains of the wall were also used as a handball alley.
