Drogheda North Lighthouse

 In among the sand-dunes and in the grounds of a private house, sits Drogheda North Light, one of three sisters built to guide ships up the river. Easily found by walking upriver from the beach at Mornington,
the last time I was here in 2007,  a large alsatian prevented me from getting out of my car.

 A light station was established here in 1842 but this light and her sisters, date from around 1880. They are no longer in use. (Deactivated 2000) I'd love to have a lighthouse in my garden.
