Castle Island, Roscommon, Ireland
Lough Key is in the northeast of Connacht, near Boyle. The lough is named after Ce', a druid who drowned when the lake was created, according to legend. The castle is known as MacDermott's, or McGreevys, Castle. The Annals of Loch Cé report that the castle was burned down in 1187 by lightning.
During the conquest of Connacht in 1235, the castle came under siege by 500 knights, a raft-mounted catapult and fire ships.
A poem to the MacDermot King of Moylurg (1421-1458) tells the story of the Hag of Loch Ce who lived on the … (12 comments)

historic: Exclusive Listing Agreements - The Way It Used to Be! - 02/13/13 08:15 AM
I have a friend who lives in North Carolina.  Her great-grandfather was a real estate agent back in the days when a real estate "listing" was a piece of paper on a list hung on the wall or in the window of a salesman's store.  At some point, he gave her an interest rate book of the sort we used to use to look up mortgage and interest payments before calculators and computers "revolutionized" those long lists of extrapolated data.  The book is worn, thumbed through, and yellowed with age and use.
Along with the book was a pad, or booklet, … (3 comments)
