A View in the entrance of Cork Harbour 9.a
View of the entrance to Cork Harbour and the surrounding landscape with a key at top left. The harbour entrance is narrow, being one and a half miles long and 1400 yards wide. It is a large harbour and the main anchorage is to the east. It became a naval base in the 17th century and defences were built for protection. The rocks known as the Bull, the Cow and the Calf have been identified and appear to the left of the harbour.
