The Geo Quiz has us searching for the name of a seaside village in County Cork, Ireland. It's about as far south as you can get in Ireland. It's in the parish of Rath.
This village is sometimes called the stolen village. That goes back to an incident in the 17th century when Algerian pirates ransacked the place.
