Liscannor is a coastal village in County Clare, Ireland.GeographyLying on the west coast of Ireland, on Liscannor Bay, the village is located on the R478 road between Lahinch, to the east, and Doolin, to the north. The Cliffs of Moher are about 5km north west of the village. Between Lahinch and Liscannor lies the small village of Moymore. Liscannor is located in the parish of Kilmacrehy.NameLiscannor probably takes its name from an old fort that was located here. Lis meaning a "fort" and Cannor a corruption of the name "Connor".Others say that it is derived from Lis, a "fort", cean a "head or headland" and or (uir) meaning "slaughter".HistoryThe area around Liscannor was part of the Barony of Corcomroe, controlled by the O’Connor family.At least 30 ships of the Spanish Armada, sent to invade England in the summer of 1588, were lost along the coast of Ireland, mainly along the western seaboard. The oar-powered galleass Zuñiga anchored off-shore at Liscannor with a broken rudder. The ship came under surveillance by the High Sheriff of Clare and by crown forces and had to withdraw to their ship. One captive was taken and sent for interrogation. The Zuñiga escaped the coast with favorable winds, moored at Le Havre, and finally made it home to Naples in the following year.Use our Ireland online holiday planner to arrange the details of your trip to Liscannor and other destinations.
