About this deal

Crookhaven, in Irish An Cruachán, derives its name from Sir Thomas Crooke who founded the village in 1610, along with Baltimore, as a Protestant fishing village. This was constructed in 1804, during the Napoleonic wars, as part of the 81-chain of signal towers used as a means to pass messages quickly along the coast as each one was in the sightline of the next. In 1959 Crookhaven was the subject of a film by English film maker James Clarke in his film Irish Village.
