Loughshinny

Résumé
Loughshinny (lɒxˈʃɪni ; meaning 'lake of the fox') is a small coastal village in northern County Dublin, Ireland, between Skerries and Rush. Loughshinny's more famous landmarks are the Martello Tower on the nearby headland of Drumanagh and some unusual rock formations visible on some of the many coastal walks in the area. The village is located in the townland of the same name which is part of the civil parish of Lusk. History The headland of Drumanagh contains a major Iron Age fort, where important Roman artefacts have been found. Some archaeologists have suggested the fort was a bridgehead for Roman military campaigns, while others suggest it was a Roman trading colony or a native Irish settlement that traded with Roman Britain. Famous people associated with Loughshinny include Richard A. Butler, who was a member of the first Seanad and chair of the Irish Farmers' Union. Richard Delahide, Chief Justice of the Irish Common Pleas, who died in 1540, lived in Loughshinny.
