    Constructed in the 13th century Hook Head lighthouse is one of the oldest operational lighthouses in the world. Oliver Cromwell declared when he was drawing up plans to attack the port city of Waterford in the 17th century that he would take the city either by “Hook or by Crook” hence they saying (Hook head being on one side of the town and Crook head being on the other”). It is located in County Wexford
