Notes and Editorial Reviews
In a land whose roots are so entangled with myths and legends of the past, it is no surprise that Ireland's lighthouses, located in some of the most unspoiled and picturesque places of that beautiful isle, are surrounded by tales of danger, heroism, romance, and mystery.
The lighthouses whose stories are told here include FASTNET in County Cork, which was called The Teardrop of Ireland because during the days of emigration for many it would be their last sight of Ireland; the MAIDENS, a pair of lighthouses, home to a Romeo and Juliet style love story;ÿ the SKELLIG ISLANDS, occupied by an ancient monastery built on the edge of the cliffs high above the treacherous sea.
IRISH LIGHTHOUSES presents the terrible
conditions, unrelenting storms, daring keepers, mythology and superstitions surrounding these lonely bastions.
