Martello TowersSandymount Martello

in Martello Towers

Martello Towers were built around the coasts of Ireland and Britain in 1804 to thwart any plans Napoleon had to invade these islands. Named after their prototype at Cape Mortella in Corsica these formidable bastions possessed 8 feet (2.4m) thick walls. A large cannon was mounted on a traversing carriage on the roof. The towers never did fire a shot in anger and they fell into disuse. Some 39 still survive in Ireland, many of which are around Dublin.
