A fantastic photo of Youghal’s iconic Clock Gate taken from under Cromwell’s Arch (circa 1970/80) – Photo by: Michael Hussey 📷The Watergate Scandal: – The Clock Gate as viewed from beneath Cromwell’s Arch, Youghal. I took this photo in the late ’70’s or early ’80’s. That was when you had this magnificent view. Sadly this view is no more as it’s obscured by one ugly plain building. The once beautiful Quay Lane leading down to the waterfront is completely destroyed and almost impossible to use such is the design. Few people walk down or up this historic street now. It must be one of the most famous streets in Ireland. The town’s Water Gate was built in the 13th century to provide access through the town walls to the docks. Known as Cromwell’s Arch, it was from here that Oliver Cromwell left Ireland in 1650, having overwintered in the town after his campaign in Ireland. I dedicate this photo to the planners and architects who vandalised this street. See MoreSee Less

Michael Hussey, thank you very much for this article. This sort of wonton destruction of our history makes my blood boil. Wood Quay in Dublin is another example. Youghal is currently being vandalised by the construction of the flood walls along the quay side and Cork City Council is trying its best to destroy Cork City in similar fashion.

A new court house with holdings cells and administration facilities was built on that lane during the Celtic BOOM/burst, It was never used, court sitting are held in refurbished Mall Arts centre. The original court house which is a listed building is falling into decay

Great pic.Thanks for the history lesson.

Youghal’s ancient forest revealed on Youghal Beach after Storm Ciara. Tides disclosed evidence of a forest floor beneath the sand dating back thousands of years. This image was taken on Tuesday, 11th Feb. 2020, shows the exposed wood between the Rifle Range and Redbarn area of the strand. The remains of the forest’s trees, preserved in the local peat, have been exposed by low tides and high winds. The prehistoric forest which was buried under water and sand possible for more than 4,500 years ago has been uncovered by Storm Ciara.

(The area to go is roughly between the Rifle Range and Red Barn ( nearer the Rifle Range end) If you walk from the Claycastle car park you will come across it. Also the area to the west and to the east of the sluice on the beach at the Claycastle car park it can be exposed there as well when the tide is out of course. This can change depending on the weather and the tides and may be completely covered over depending on the these occurrences)

Fantastic! Thank you very much about the pictures and the history of the forest, Ireland still surprise me after long time here. I love ❤️Youghal!!

We shouldn't be seeing this and the reason we are is because of neglect by the County Council they never maintained the timber breakers so now all the sand is been drawn off the beach sso now the tides are breaking further up the beach if its left then eventually the boardwalk will be washed away and remember it's only sand between the car park and the sea so how long is that going to last. The people who installed the old timber breakers did it for a reason and it worked if it was left up to me I would put in new breakers but this time using the same granite boulders in a line out like the old timber ones this would save the beach and also can you imagine a line of small beachs all the way out to Red barn. I've seen these on lots of the beaches in spain and they work and look very well. Then again who am I to know?

Isn’t it amazing, lovely to see 🥰

That is absolutely amazing wow

As a child living in the front strand this was a regular occurance, when the sand was stripped from the beach and the turf was exposed there would be little pools in which we would retrieve coins that had been lost from pockets over the the previous summers. Ocasionally a piece of jewelry was found, This was in the 60s.

Michael, fantastic photos 💕

I saw this in the great storm back in the 50’s. Must definitely go down again to see them. Noreen Small Len Lanigan

The Irish Coast Guard has said it "strongly advises" the public to stay away from exposed beaches, cliffs and piers during the ongoing stormy conditions.
It says the message is to "stay back, stay high and stay dry" during the high tides, large swells and onshore winds.
