Donegore Motte

On a clear day, this historic pre-Anglo/Norman motte has views of six Ulster counties.

In earlier years, the “Motte” was belived to have been a Passage Grave, but around 1798 it was an important meeting place for the United Irishmen preparing for the ‘Battle of Antrim’.  A mound is all that remains today of this 12th Century Motte.  The picturesque St John’s Church is located close by.
