St Dubhán‘s Church

Séipéal Naomh DubhánHook Peninsula -County Wexford

In the 5th century a Welsh monk named Dubhán built a first church and soon the whole peninsula was known as Rinn Dubháin. Dubhán can be translated into English with Hook and so it came that in the course of anglicisation the area got the name Hook Head. The ruins of the church, which can be visited today, date from the 13th or 14th century.
