Smerwick Harbour Tide Clock

A wooden framed nautical chart showing Smerwick Harbour (Ard na Caithne ) on the Dingle Peninsula in  Co.Kerry, Ireland. It is famous for a battle in November 1580, during the Second Desmond Rebellion. A force of between 400 and 700 Papal freelance soldiers, mostly of Spanish and Italian origin, landed at Smerwick to support the Catholic rebels. They were forced to retreat to the nearby promontory fort of Dún an Óir, where they were besieged by the English. The Papal commander parleyed and was bribed, and the defenders surrendered within a few days. The officers were spared, but the other ranks were then summarily executed on the orders of the English commander.

Now peaceful, Smerwick Harbour boasts a number of beautiful beaches. Narrow trails connect the beaches.An extended walk provides a great view on Mount Brandon and the Three Sisters.

The print shows  the features along the coast.The area covered is from Clogher in the south, to Sybil Head, the Three Sisters and on up to Ballydavid Head in the North
