Dublin Bay full moon for #StormEleanor as the @IrishLights Muglins light (1879) flashes. Two pirates were hanged on the island for high seas murder in 1765. Dalkey property prices were not impacted

Ballycotton Island and Lighthouse, east Cork

“I thought this was pretty cool. I took a trip out to Ballycotton Lighthouse yesterday in my home of East Cork, only to realise that the tower I’ve been looking across the bay over the years is actually black….
It turns out that as far as my guide and Google know, it is one of only three black lighthouses in the world (the others are in Victoria and Texas). Why, is anyone’s guess but either way it just adds a further USP to East Cork along with Trabolgan and Darina Allen’s banana bread. Who knew?!”
There you go now.
Fair play though, in fairness.
