History of Youghal
Youghal is also one of the best preserved examples of a 13th century town in Europe, and as such has been designated a ‘Heritage’ Town by Failte Ireland. It was built as a town to defend and control trade on the Blackwater River which leads into the heart of Munster’s rich farmlands. Youghal’s position was critical to the maintenance of that trade, and access to the most valuable farmland in Ireland. It derives its name from the Gaelic word ‘Eochaill’, meaning ‘yew wood’, pronounced ‘Yawl’.
