The History and Topography of the County of Clare by James Frost

Part I. Topography of Thomond Chapter 9. Ui Fearmaic; Gleann Omra; Ui Bracain; Ui Floinn; Ui Ronghaile

Ui Floinn

O’Brien’s Bridge Parish (part of)

Very few objects of antiquity are found in that part of the parish of O’Brien’s Bridge comprised in the district of Ui Floinn. A church called Trúgh, dedicated to no saint in particular, and a castle in the same townland of Trúgh, both much injured by time, are all that remain. In the list of 1580, the castle is stated to have belonged to some person whose name cannot be deciphered, but who, no doubt, was a MacNamara.
