If you're near Killala, it's worth having a look at this very well preserved Round Tower. Information is written just outside and inside the entrance.

An impressive and imposing round tower in an historic village. It is situated beside a 17th century deanery and carparking. You can only get a good photograph or view when you are a bit removed from it.
