The green area in Youghal most familiar to those of us passing through is undoubtedly the 1798 Memorial Park between the well known Walter Raleigh Hotel and the waterfront. It commemorates four local men killed in the ’98 rebellion.
It is seen at its best in the Spring and Summer when the flowers are blooming and when families stroll around and the kids play. On the eastern “rampart”, the fishermen patiently wait for their catch, really busy only when the mackerel shoals roll in, willing takers of the bait on offer.
