Quigley's Point

Quigley's Point (Irish: Rinn Uí Choigligh) is a village in County Donegal, Ireland, located on the eastern shores of Inishowen and overlooking the wide expanse of Lough Foyle. To the south is the city of Derry and to the north lie the villages of Moville and Greencastle. A car ferry links Greencastle with Magilligan during the summer.

The village of Quigley's Point is also known as Carrowkeel (pronounced "Kerrykeel" locally) as it is marked as such on Irish Ordnance Survey maps. However all local signage and the local post office use the name "Quigley's Point".
