Balbriggan Lighthouse

 One of the grand old lighthouses of Ireland (1769 - the second oldest after Hook Head) this beauty was looking a little dilapidated when I last visited in 2007
 I was delighted to find that she has received a fresh lick of paint and is now looking very well. Located at the end of the harbour wall in Balbriggan. From the centre of town, take the back road to Skerries and its almost immediately there on your left, through the arches of the viaduct.

 In 2005, there appears to have been a campaign to have the dome of the lighthouse restored. See here
