The Leap Castle was built around 1250  by the famous O’carroll clan, renowned for cruelty. After that, the castle was passed from father to son by murdering oppositions, rival families and even their own relations. One of the brothers was a priest. While he held a mass for a family group, his rival brother killed him by a sward to gain power. Now this place is called “The bloody chappel.”. Some people say the slain priest haunts the castle at night.
