The Monks Fishing House, Cong, County Mayo, Ireland

The monk’s fishing house hut, built in the early 12th Century. This stone structure stands in the the river. Inside, there is a square hole in the middle of the floor. On cold, rainy days, it is said the monks used to light a fire in the hearth and catch their dinner by lowering their line and bait through this hole and into the water.

Legend has it that the monks had a clever plan for catching the trout and salmon by fixing a net in the river below and connecting the net to a line attached to a bell in the abbey kitchen. When a fish was netted the bell rang to inform Brother Cook that he might include fresh fish on the menu for the day
