Dunmore East Tide Clock
Dunmore East (Irish: An Dún Mór Thoir) is a popular tourist and fishing village in County Waterford, Ireland. Situated on the west side of Waterford Harbour on Ireland’s southeastern coast, it lies within the barony of Gaultier (Gáll Tír – “foreigners’ land” in Irish) reference to the influx of Viking and Norman settlers in the area.
Iron Age people established a promontory fort overlooking the sea at Shanoon (referred to in 1832 as meaning the ‘Old Camp’ but more likely Canon Power’s Sean Uaimh, ‘Old Cave’) at a point known for centuries as Black Nobb, where the old pilot station now stands, and underneath which a cave runs. Henceforth the place was referred to as Dun Mor, the Great Fort.
