History – Glandore Village 7

Glandore (Cuan Dor) meaning harbour of oaks or possibly harbour of gold. Glandore is one of the prettiest villages on the south coast of Ireland. Its position in the path of the gulf stream ensures its mild climate all year round, consequently its flora is diverse and of great interest as plants are found in bloom here out of season.

Sunken Treasure – Glandore Harbour 3

A local man and amateur diver Mel Bendon discovered a sunken ship on the Danger Rock. Some of its cargo was still intact, and consisted of earthenware tiles, bowls and jugs. Little is known about the origins of this wreck or its date, but it is thought to be early to mid 1800. The picture is of a recovered bowl from the wreck.
