Castletownroche is located on the River Awbeg in the Blackwater Valley about eight miles (13 km) from Mallow.Historyde la RochThe first historical record about Castletownroche is from the late 13th century when the Anglo-Norman family of de la Roche established a fortress here.They were descendants of Richard FitzGodebert (Richard, son of Godebert) who came with Strongbow to Ireland. Their family had a castle in Pembrokeshire that was built upon an outcrop of stone and they became known as FitzGodebert de la Roch (FitzGodebert of the Rock). From that, their Hiberno-Norman descendants were known as "de la Roch" and finally, Roche. It is from this element, and the castle they built here in County Cork, that Castletownroche gets its name.
