The sack of Darry occurs in the aftermath of the Battle of the Camps during the War of the Five Kings.

Prelude

After the Battle of the Camps and the proclaiming of Robb Stark as King in the North and of the Trident, Ser Edmure Tully allows his river lords to return to their lands and clear them of Lannister intruders. Engagements are fought at Stone Hedge, Raventree Hall and at Darry, where Lord Lyman Darry's men recapture his castle from the westermen.[2]

Sack

Lord Lyman holds the castle for a fortnight. Ser Gregor Clegane descends on the castle, taking it quickly and putting all the defenders to the sword, including the eight-year-old Lord Lyman.[2] Gregor leaves a garrison of Lannister soldiers.[3]

Ser Gregor, having killed Ser Raymun Darry at the Mummer's Ford, and the young Lord Lyman at Darry, is responsible for the downfall one of the major houses of the riverlands. Lord Lyman was the last male heir of the Darry line.[2]

Aftermath

Later in the war, Darry falls to northern forces after a brief siege. Ser Helman Tallhart receives orders from Lord Roose Bolton to put the Lannister garrison to the sword and torch the castle in the name of Robb Stark.[3]
