Muckross Lake, also called Middle Lake or The Torc, is a lake in Killarney National Park, County Kerry, Ireland. It is one of the three famous Lakes of Killarney, along with Lough Leane and Upper Lake. It is Ireland's deepest lake, reaching to 75 metres (246 ft) in parts.
As with many lakes, Muckross Lake allegedly contains a great monster — possibly a 20-foot (6-metre) long eel.
