OUGHTERARD DOVECOTE

0
Rated 0 out of 5

Dovecotes tend to be very rare structures throughout Ireland, and this one in Oughterard is a fine example of one. Its hexagonal form is unusual and the stonework is well built. The nesting boxes have also survived the test of time and are intact.

Dovecotes are used to house pigeons and doves however in days gone by there were more seen as a symbol of high status.
