A Lighthouse of Ireland

latitude 51° 50' 42.8" N
longitude 8° 16' 26.3" W

June 6, 2005

This screwpile light was hard for me to identify until John Eagle recognized it and gave me the correct name. Very unusual structure for a UK light (quite typical in the Chesapeak bay.) Located at the end of a long mud bar in Cork Harbour south of Cobh, marking a sharp turn in the main ship channel. ARLHS # IRE-078 (A 5736)
