The Doctor's Room:-
There was a Doctor Hennessy living in Kilkee long ago. He used write poetry in a cave in the Duggerna Rocks. In the cave he kept his books also. One day a storm arose and the water came into the cave and the doctor was drowned. His books were seen floating on the water. The cave has since then been called The Doctor's Room.
