County Clare: A History and Topography 1837 by Samuel Lewis


A village, in the parish of Oughtmanna, barony of Burren, county of Clare, and province of Munster, 21/2 miles (W.) from Burren, on the bay of Galway ; containing 410 inhabitants. This village, which is situated in a detached portion of the parish, is chiefly remarkable for a Point of that name which stretches into the bay from the peninsula formed by the parish of Abbey, and on which a martello tower has been erected. There is also a similar tower on Aughnish Point, to the north-east, which also forms a detached portion of the same parish. Finvarra Point is situated on the north-east side of the bay of Ballyvaughan, and to the south-west of the entrance of the harbour of New Quay.
