Carrickfergus Castle is a large castle built in 1180 by the Norman John de Courcy after he had overthrown the kings of the north of Ireland. It stands at the head of Belfast Lough and has seen a great deal of military action over the years, being besieged in turn bythe Scots,lrish,English and French.
The castle is haunted by a young soldier known as Buttoncap, who lived at the end of the sixteenth century. He definitely seems to have come to a violent end, though there are a couple of variations on how it hap pened. According to one story, he fell in love with another manís wife and was killed by him (see Dobbinís Inn Hotel, page 315). According to another, he was wrongfully accused of the murder of an officer stationed in the castle and executed.
