Wicklow Head Lighthouse

The decommissioned lighthouse at Wicklow Head has been adaptively reused as short stay accommodation available through the Irish Landmark Trust.

Usually open to view on at least one day during Heritage Week, for anyone who was unable to make it to Wicklow for this, thejournal.ie have an article including a link to 360 degree photos of each floor in the lighthouse.

Friends of Waterville Cable Station

I am currently at the Heritage week talk in Waterville, Co. Kerry about the cable station in Waterville given by Dorothy and Amy Rudd.

I have generally been disappointed by HW talks this year but this mother and daughter combination gave an excellent presentation.

There is a Facebook page setup for updates on the ongoing research into this aspect of Ireland’s industrial heritage.
