Ogrooe: (pronounced “O-grew-a”)by navigatourist
A fearsome incursion by the sea into the land that many years ago was a beachcomber’s haven. As this storming of the land by the sea was open to the North Atlantic, a large amount of flotsam and jetsam was washed into this area. This was mainly during WWII when the Atlantic convoys were arriving from the United States en-route to the Port of Derry. After a long dangerous voyage across the Atlantic and when almost within reach of safety, the ships had to run a gauntlet of German submarines that would be lying in wait between Horn Head and Tory island or east of Inishtrahull Island, both areas of exceptionally deep water and excellent hiding places from any protection the convoys might have had left.
