History of the Property: At the start of the nineteenth century, lack of roads rendered Connemara very remote from Dublin. Nevertheless, to the British authorities it represented two major worries - fear of French invasion, and loss of revenue because of the very high level of smuggling which then prevailed. To combat both these, a series of coastguard stations were built, one of which was at Ross point, the garrison being housed at Ross Lodge about 500 meters away on the sheltered southern side of Ross Hill (50 meters).
