Skerries Tide Clock
Skerries- The name comes from the Norse words skere and “ey” which has been rendered in the Irish language na sceirí which means rocky islands.
Skerries is on gently sloping land approaching the coast, which is partly overlooked by low bluffs. There are hills around, including Mill Hill, where a windmill has long been sited. The town has five islands off its coast called Shenick Island, St Patrick’s, Colt and the island formation of Rockabill, which comprises “The Cow” and “The Calf”, separated by a narrow channel. There is also Red Island, which is a tied island.
Canvas printed and framed in a black 230mm x 230mm frame which is 45mm deep, this chart would make a great gift for sailors or anyone with an interest in the coastline. It is from a genuine Admiralty chart showing the features along the coast, chart datum, hazards, tidal diamonds etc.
Hang it in your family room, hallway or office.
