Rosses Point is a village in County Sligo, Ireland and also the name of the surrounding peninsula.

A plate at the base includes the following: Lost at sea, lost at sea Or in the evening tide We loved you, we miss you May God with you abide. The Royal National Lifeboat Institution Sligo Bay Lifeboat Station is built next to the pier which harbours a number of fishing vessels.
