Knockgraffon Motte and Bailey, Co.
Tipperary Ireland. Erected 1192.
On top of this man-made mound the
Norman Lord lived in a wooden house. It would have been
surrounded by a wooden stockade. The Bailey which was the flat
area of land attached to the Motte was also surrounded by a strong
wooden stockade and in here the rank and file with their animals, etc.
