Ballycotton Lighthouse

Ballycotton, County Cork Ireland view map

"Situated on the steep sloped Ballycotton Island approximately 2 km from the village, the lighthouse was commissioned in 1851 when the keeper and his family lived on the island and their children rowed to school weather permitting. By 1899 the four keepers were housed in the town with keepers rotating duty at the lighthouse. In 1975 the light was converted to electricity and it was automated on 28 March 1992 when the lighthouse keepers were withdrawn." Wikipedia

Great view of its location. Looks well fortified. Must be dangerous to walk on that slope.

I've never seen a black lighthouse before. Good view of this unusual building.
