The South Dublin coastline, particularly Killiney Bay was considered by the British to be more vulnerable to a French invasion and when war broke out in 1803 the authorities erected 16 Martello towers some backed up by batteries on the coastline south of Dublin between Sandymount and Bray in County Wicklow at strategic locations.
Tower No.14 was erected at Seapoint and is now a popular spot for swimmers at all times of the day and all seasons.
