Derrydonnell Castle in Co. Galway has been around since the 15th century and even though the four corners are still standing more or less straight up, there are quite a few significant cracks and gaps in the stonework which would suggest that it won't be standing in its present state for much longer.

The robust construction of the stairs in tower houses like Derrydonnell often gives the opportunity to visit several if not all of the floors, of which in this case there are five or six. Two of the window frames in the upper floors looked like they were about to give in and fall down right in front of my eyes. I even looked back as I was leaving the castle to see if they had. They hadn't - not yet.
