Donaghadee Lighthouse at night
Donaghadee Lighthouse at night
Donaghadee Lighthouse captured at dusk with a long exposure. The light appears to be only white from this picture, but there is also a red light, visible only from certain angles. The people on the pier wall are fishing; the long exposure has captured the movement of the boats in the harbour.
Donaghadee Lighthouse
The lighthouse at Donaghadee dates from 1836. The tower is built of cut limestone, fluted, and in its early days was unpainted in natural grey colour. Today the tower, including the lantern and dome, is painted white with a black plinth, a decision which was taken some time between 1869 and 1875. It was converted to electric power on the 2nd October 1934 (the first Irish lighthouse to be converted to electric). See LinkExternal link for more information.
