FISHGUARD was an important port in the early twentieth century, when ships were an important form of transport. It is now one of the main ports for ferry travel to Rosslare offering two crossings every day. Stena Line run day-trips and short stays to Ireland. In 1797, the coast near Fishguard was the site of the last invasion of Britain, when a French army landed at Carregwastad Point. The area had no-one to defend it so a local woman, Jemima Nicholas collected a group of women dressed in traditional Welsh costume and stood against the invaders. The French mistook Jemima Nicholas and her colleagues for soldiers and after a few days, they surrendered. The surrender was signed at The Royal Oak in the centre of Fishguard.
