Portmarnock is situated to the north of Dublin City in County Fingal. Portmarnock is famous for its world class golf course which formally opened on December 26 1894, while another links course, opened in the 1990s, was designed by German golfer Bernhard Langer. That golf course and its accompanying hotel are built around the former home of the Jameson distilling family. Anne Jameson's son was Guglielmo Marconi (she married Giuseppe Marconi), who invented the wireless and carried out the first transatlantic morse code transmission in 1902 from Nova Scotia, Canada to England.
