By Hook or by Crooke! ( Story by request of Senor Adolfo Crooke in Spain whose ancestors came from Co.Waterford. )

On the South Coast in County Waterford a few miles from Passage East is a little village called Crooke, a name was immortalised by Oliver Cromwell, a character from history that some people believe should have been called by that name without the ‘e’ on the end.

Notorious soldier Cromwell, in the 1600's is reputed to have said that he would defeat the City of Waterford, ‘By Hook or by Crooke,’ (Hook being another place nearby along the coast.) This expression has long been used to mean strong determination to achieve a goal.
