Drake's Point, Crosshaven, Co. Cork
According to local folklore, when explorer Sir Francis Drake was second-in-command of the English fleet facing the Spanish Armada, he sailed up Owenboy river to Drake's Pool, a river anchorage outside Crosshaven, to hide his vessel from the enemy.
Drake's exploits are remembered at the picturesque village in a development by O'Flynn Construction called Drake's Point.
