V4740 : Signal Tower, Dursey Island

taken 15 years ago, near to Ballynacallagh, Cork, Ireland

Signal Tower, Dursey Island
Signal Tower, Dursey Island
The signal tower, said to be a relic of the defences erected during the Napoleonic wars, is here seen reflected in a small lochan on its western side. The Beara Peninsula stretches away to the east.
From this spot on a glorious clear day we could look to the north, the east and the south and see what seemed like the whole of the south west corner of Ireland; the peninsulas reaching out into the Atlantic, one behind the other, gradually fading into the blue haze.
