1st print run sold out in just 3 years, now reprinted



For all intents and purposes I started my lighthouse quest with this one, partly because it was the nearest and also because my sponsor at the time was Salmara and they had a salmon farm there. I went out on their ship to take the original shots. Roancarrig features in the Neil Jordan movie 'Ondine' starring Colin Farrell, where some of the action takes place

See Roancarrig up close and personal on my Southern Irish Lighthouse in June each year. Click here for more information
