Ballyfinboy Castle, Co. Tipperary


Here the ivy is almost covering a gigging sheela on this 12th century castle
and she is known locally as The Dancer. A stern faced figure with both arms
passing behind the legs and grasping her vulva. Try dancing like that!
4m up on the South wall facing the road. Slightly difficult access.

This Castle is for sale for 100,000 Euro or nearest offer
