Hook Head Lighthouse is located in County Wexford on the Hook Peninsula. The tower marks the entrance to Waterford Harbor. On other side of the Harbor is the village of Crooke. Supposedly, the phrase “by hook or by crook” originated from William Cromwell in the 17th century who was invading Ireland and said that Waterford would fall “by Hook or by Crooke”.
