(Built about 1801 as a signal tower against a possible French invasion, Ballydavid Tower had fallen into disuse by the middle of the century and was briefly reoccupied during the First World War. It was a three storey building and the remains of the garrison house as well as the tower itself can still be seen.)We then retrace our steps back to the cars.
