A Bit of History

Balbriggan is Ireland’s second oldest active lighthouse, after Hook Head. When nearby Rockabill lighthouse was established, Balbriggan was relegated to the status of a harbour light. And by the 1960s, corrosion had damaged the dome beyond repair, and the decision was taken to remove it. The fixed light was then replaced by a flashing unit mounted on a column.

A Note from the Artist

Since September 2018 (too late for my Lighthouses of Ireland book), the lantern dome has been restored to the tower and the lighthouse once again looks much as it did throughout most of its history. I drove down on the night of a supermoon. I’ve taken a little artistic license, but the harbour looked magical in the unusually warm moonlight.
