This village is sometimes called the stolen village. That goes back to an incident in the 17th century when Algerian pirates ransacked the place. Hundreds of Irish villagers were put in irons and taken as slaves to the North African Barbary Coast. That's probably why a local pub in this Irish village is called The Algiers Inn.

Name this famous Irish village with links to Algeria and Maryland.
