Fastnet by John Eagle

First lighthouse built 1854, made of cast iron it replaced the light on Cape Clear. When the similar cast iron lighthouse on the Calf Rock was destroyed it was decided to build a granite one

My thanks to Capt. Colm Martyn of Irish Helicopters for flying me to the lighthouse and also to Capt. Mick Conneely
