Carlisle Pier, Dun Laoghaire
This is a lighthouse? Well, not really. It is an ex-lighthouse. It has ceased to be.
The Lighthouse Directory lists this as a lighthouse. It has a picture of a red light mounted atop the old ferry terminal building that used to stand on the pier (also called the Mailboat pier, as this was the pier that the boats to Holyhead used to leave from). However, the building - together with a rather lovely Victorian railway station - was torn down by the Council in September 2009. The red light now appears to have been transferred to a pole at the end of the pier.
