Skerries is a small seaside fishing town in Fingal. The name comes from the Norse word ‘skere’ which became the Irish ‘na sceirí’ which means ‘the rocks’.

Historically, Skerries was an active fishing port and later a major centre of hand embroidery, while in the 20th century, it became a resort town, and a dormitory town for Dublin commuters.

The two Martello towers in Skerries at Red Island and Shenick Island are part of a chain of such towers constructed in the early 19th century. They were to serve as protection from Napoleonic French armies (In the scenario of an invasion) and as an early warning system for attacks.
