Description: John Hinde Postcard view of Ardmore Round Tower. Thought to have been founded by St. Declan in the 5th century - predating St. Patrick. The round tower may be of 12th century origin, but could have been built as early as the 10th century, though the first known mention of the tower is in 1642 as it and a nearby castle were occupied by Irish forces. The tower was said to have held 40 men at the time of a battle with English soldiers, so the logical conclusion would be that floors and ladders existed at that time. Info courtesy of Roundtowers.org
