Ballymoney in North Wexford.

Ballymoney is on the Courtown to Castletown road, the village itself is no more than a post office, but it offers an impressive range of facilities. - golf courses, pitch and putt, craft shops, pubs and a lovely beach with public amenities provided.    

Off the coast of Ballymoney there have been many famous shipwrecks, some are remembered today in house and pub names.
The 'Isaalt' was a twin-masted, 134 ton auxiliary schooner, built in Portmadoc in Wales in 1909. The vessel had been used as a training schooner by the Irish Department of Defence during the war. She had been sold to do film work in the Caribbean. On her last commercial trip, en route from Dublin to Waterford, she came upon a raging storm. The vessel ran aground on Ballymoney beach and despite the best efforts of the Arklow lifeboat who operated for ten hours in a force nine gale, five of the seven crew lost their lives.

The 'Orphan Girl' was a schooner which operated out of Arklow Harbour. It regularly brought cement, coal and other materials from Liverpool at the turn of the century. The Orphan Girl was sank and re-floated off Ballymoney beach. Many items of nautical memorabilia adorn the walls of the local pub, most interesting are the cuttings from the original log book of the ship from which the name of the pub comes.
