Crannog At Lake Knockalough

Crannog At Lake Knockalough in County Clare, Ireland

A sinking dock and the distant island, known as a crannog, are reflected in the still waters of Lake Knockalough near Kilmihil in County Clare, Ireland.

Crannogs are the Medieval equivalent to present day “safe rooms” or “panic rooms”… these small islands in the middle of lakes were usually artificially created as a refuge from shoreside marauders in the days of old.
