Two lifeboats at Donaghadee
Two lifeboats at Donaghadee
The current Donaghadee Lifeboat LinkExternal link 'Saxon' is currently "off service at the minute [due to] a leak in one of the coolant pipes on the starboard engine" (from LinkExternal link ). The relief boat providing cover is the Trent class 'Henry Heys Duckworth'. Both are seen here in Donaghadee 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.
