Located just 3 miles south of Clifden is the crash landing site of the first transatlantic fight of Alcock and Brown (1919) and the monument to this historic achievement. Also nearby is the site of the first radio transmitter station from which Marconi exchanged the first transatlantic radio messages with a station in Nova Scotia, Canada in 1907.
