About the Area
Many shipwrecks have been recorded here, as far back 17th century, the most infamous being the paddle-steamer Killarney which left Cork for Bristol in 1838 when survivors clung to a pinnacle of rock for two days awaiting rescue.
Please see opposite an image of a Stonechat, which may be seen here at Rocky Bay.
