Dun Laoghaire West Pier revisited
Can't believe it was six years since I was here last. Like last time, I decided to walk the East Pier rather than the West, as the West Pier is very very long
So this is the view from the West Pier. The first three shots are from towards the end of the pier, so looking north westwards. The bottom three are from the beginning of the pier and so look more east of north. The red splodge of Poolbeg lighthouse can be seen in pictures four and six.
Built in 1852, (ten years younger than the East Pier) the lantern was painted white until 1996, when they decided to paint it green. The associated lightkeepers dwellings date from 1863.
