Sailors' Grave

On Cliff Road, between Tobar Chaoidhe and Dunlickey Castle.
One stormy night a ship was blown towards the coast. The sailors got on a rock and remained there until morning. Two of the sailors died from fright during the night and were buried in a hole under a big rock which is called Sailors Grave. When the sea is in it goes around the rock and it looks like an island then.
