"This great semi-fortified manor house overlooks the River Shannon in south east Galway where the river enters Lough Derg. Built between 1610 and 1618, it was without equal in Ireland at the time in style, grandeur and distinction, which can be attributed to the wealth of its builder, Richard de Burgo (Burke), 4th Earl of Clanricarde and Lord President of Connacht, of the famous de Burgo family of Norman extraction."   http://www.megalithicireland.com/Portumna%20Castle,%20Galway.html

during a raid on Lough Derg’s Holy Island by the Vikings, one of their boats was holed. They needed an oak plank to repair it and they took a branch from the Brian Ború Oak. You can see where they cut it from in the photo above. 1000 yrs old oldest tree
