Ballinacarriga Castle (Béal Átha na Carraige in Irish, meaning Ford Mouth of the Rock) is a 16th-century tower house.
On the second floor of the tower is a chute known as "Moll the Pooka's Hole". A "Pooka"is an evil Irish winged creature of the night, with male heads but the body of dog, goat or horse. Their sole purpose was to terrify any human they encountered, cause crops to fail or steal newborn babies. Did such a creature frequent this castle?
