Dingle of the Husseys, Part 12

Off the peninsula:

The twenty-third, we came to Castel-Magne where we found the pynance of the victuals at the Castel syde, and the master which guided her thyther, told my Lord Justice that he had sounded the channel, and durst undertake to bring a ship of c tons within a stone’s cast of the castel; and, truly, it is built on a notable place to rule both the counties of Kerry and Desmond, on both sydes of the River of Magne.

Indeed, Castlemaine was to become the main royal fortress in the area for the next few centuries.
