Y is for Youghal

Youghal (pronounced Yawl) is a port city on the southern Irish coast only 50kms from Cork. We (husband and I) have visited both Cork and Youghal previously, but when our cruise pauses in Cork in a couple of weeks time, we hope to make a day trip across to reacquaint ourselves with this village. Its strategic location made it the target of many raiding forces. As a result, it has an interesting history and is worth reading about.

If it is as I remember it, I’m thinking of setting a proposal scene there!

Haiku:

Youghal, Ireland’s southern sea port –
Battles of hist’ry –
build cosmopolitan life.
