Youghal Tide Clock.
Youghal ( Eochaill, meaning “yew wood”) is a seaside resort town in County Cork, Ireland. Located on the estuary of the River Blackwater, the town is a former militarily and economic center. Located on the edge of a steep riverbank, the town has a long and narrow layout.
According to Geoffrey Keating (Seathrún Céitinn), in late March 830 there was a “great convulsion of nature” in the province of Munster. This changed the flow of the River Blackwater moving its mouth from Whiting Bay and forming the harbour of Youghal. 1,010 people were lost by a fierce storm when the sea broke its banks.Soon afterwards in 853 a detachment from the Norman invasion built a fortress in Youghal and laid the foundation of a commercial seaport.
