CUT & PASTED FROM PART 1....see bottom line (the history).who was Delap please?

Castle LetirmacCriomhthainn 1300 A.D. It was sometime during the next 300 years that the MacCriomhthainn clan built their castle known as LetirmacCriomhthainn or Letter. The castle of the MacCriomhthainns is located near Reenard in County Kerry, on the lower South slopes of Bentee Mountain. Reenard is a small town and today a lot of our relatives are still live there, the town is located between Valentia Island and Cahersiveen. Today, apart from its enclosing earthwork, there are no visible remains of this castle besides the foundations and defensive ditch that are still visible. It has been recorded that Cnogher MacCriomhthainn occupied the castle in 1656, during this time the castle was apparently destroyed and levelled by the English army commanded by Oliver Cromwell. The MacCriomhthainns were then run off their lands, the area was then confiscated and granted to Alexander Eagers in 1667. No trace of the castle survived in 1841, and Delap recorded that it had been demolished to build adjoining farmhouses.
