Artist's Description

Bannow Island Strand, County Wexford ~ the location where the Normans first landed in Ireland, in 1169.

Bannow (Irish: Banú) is an area situated in the south of County Wexford, in Ireland. An early Norman town was founded at Bannow.

It was here that the Normans first landed en masse in 1169, during their invasion of Ireland at the behest of Diarmait MacMurrough. In that year, a group of Normans commanded by Robert Fitz-Stephen sailed into Bannow Bay and landed near Bannow in three ships.

They landed at the island of Bannow, which is no longer an island today – the channel dividing the former island from the mainland has since silted up and the island is now joined to the mainland.
