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 sourceÂ | edit] ^ Placenames Database of Ireland ^ a b "Inchydoney, West Cork".
