Notes

Killyleagh Castle is believed to be the oldest inhabited castle in Ireland. Parts of it date back to 1180. Killyleagh was settled in the 12th century by Norman knight John de Courcy, who built fortifications on the site of the castle in 1180, for protection from the vikings.

The current Baron of Killyleagh is Prince Andrew.
