Deep Mapping - Deep Maps: West Cork Coastal Cultures
The aim of the Deep Maps: West Cork Coastal Cultures project is to develop new ways of thinking about place. We apply these to our endangered marine environment, with the aim of encouraging the ongoing stewardship of Cork’s coast, and Ireland’s maritime heritage.

The project investigates the biological, cultural, and historical contexts of the south west coast of Ireland from 1700 to 1920, and connects them to the present day marine environment. Our study area stretches along the arc of Roaring Water Bay from Timoleague to Bantry Bay.

Meet the Irish master codebreaker you never heard of
In 1943, one of Nazi Germany’s most notorious communication codes was broken by a mild-mannered librarian and family man from Abbeyfeale in west Limerick, Richard Hayes. His day job was director of the National Library of Ireland, but during the Emergency, he secretly led a covert team of cryptanalysts, working feverishly on the infamous “Görtz Cipher” – a fiendish Nazi code that had stumped many of the greatest code-breaking minds at Bletchley Park, the centre of British wartime cryptography.

Astonishingly, the feat was accomplished not in one of the huts at Bletchley Park, but in a now derelict building colloquially known as “The Red House” on Montpellier Hill in Dublin. If this wasn’t an amazing enough feat, Hayes also broke a complex microdot enciphering system which had baffled the American OSS, as well an enciphering system used by the dreaded Sicherheitsdienst (or SD), the intelligence section of the SS. The breaking of the latter code was instrumental in the Allied victory at the Battle of the Bulge.

Few individuals can be said to have altered the course of the second World War on their own, but Hayes was one such individual – and he did it not with a gun, but with a detailed knowledge of the complex algorithms and mathematical permutations involved in the art of cryptography.
