    • Castle Altinagri that locals also known as Castle Ogilbe located outside the village Donemana, County Tyrone. History of Castle Altinagri quite dramatic, and at the same time short. It was built in 1860 by William Ogilbe, and his son James, who later became famous ichthyologist, lived here until 1885, until he was forced to move to Australia.

      It so happened that James fell in love with Mary Jane Jameson, a local seamstress. The bride's father refused to give permission for the marriage. No one knows exactly what displeased his future father-bride; we only know that love James simply took it with is overseas, leaving his ancestral gnezdo.Ostavlenny unattended, the castle became unusable by the end of the XIX century.

      If a large elegant building with a magnificent banquet hall, built of hewn stone, and is surrounded by a massive wall of the same material, now abandoned. Access to the castle is limited, since at present moment.eto private area possessions, but everyone tourists can be photographed against the backdrop of this historic monument, is beyond it.
