Lighthouse Island, Copeland Islands near Donaghadee :: J5986
Lighthouse Island is one of the Copeland Islands, off the north eastern coast of Co Down, close to Donaghadee and the entrance to Belfast Lough. The following is a condensed version of a Wikipedia article: in 1671 James Ross obtained a fee farm grant of these. In 1770 David Kerr bought the islands from the Earl of Clanbrassil. A light beacon was established circa 1715 on what is now Lighthouse Island followed by a permanent lighthouse in 1813. In 1884 the lighthouse, which still exists, was replaced by one on nearby Mew Island. No longer inhabited, Lighthouse Island is now home to the Copeland Bird Observatory.
