Drogheda East Lighthouse
This is another of the three sisters, built around 1880, station established 1842. This was the front range light. The idea was that ships aligned this light with the West Lighthouse and that got them up the river.
Delighted to see that since my last visit here in 2007, the unsightly graffiti has been cleaned up and the old girl is actually looking rather well, peeping out from the sand-dunes.
Easily found, located in Mornington, directions here
