Red Hugh O’Donnell was chief of the O’Donnell clan when he built his castle in 1474. Donegal Castle, sometimes called O'Donnell Castle, was built on the ruins of a Viking fortress. When the British took over Ireland, the Brooke Family took over Donegal Castle. The British are gone now. The castle, in ruins for centuries, has been restored. It reflects the British influence and the resilience of Irish culture.
