Lydican Castle – 1922

Newmarket Era 3rd November, 1922 p2.
Lydican Castle, built in Cromwellian days in County Galway was destroyed by fire set by armed men on Saturday. The men kept the family occupying the castle under armed guard in an outhouse during the fire. The Republican forces who came on the scene helped to save some of the furniture in the castle. The fire is also said to have been due to trouble between agriculturalists and the owners of the estate.
