Inchydoney, Co. Cork

Inchydoney is a small island, long connected to the mainland by two causeways, in west County Cork, Ireland. The nearest town is Clonakilty. It has Blue Flag beach.edit source | edit]

In 1584, the island, having escheated to the Crown, was granted by Queen Elizabeth I to the Bishop of Ross. After the Battle of Clonakilty in 1642, 600 of the Irish forces fled towards the island to take refuge; but with the tide setting in at the time, they all drowned before they could reach it.edit source | edit] ^ Placenames Database of Ireland ^ a b "Inchydoney, West Cork".
