Tuskar Rock which can be seen clearly from the house, is actually a group of rocks around 11km out, topped by a lighthouse. Tidal currents are powerful at this point where two ocean currents meet. These rocks have been responsible for at least 167 wrecks, which is something of an Irish record. A huge number of ships and German U-boats were sunk off Wexford's coasts during the first World War. Tuskar is actually a Viking word, meaning “Large Rock” - rather unimaginatively.
