Balbriggan Lighthouse

3rd January 2012

Took this shot around 3:30pm.  Bitterly cold day, so didnt delay too long.  I like going back to the same places for photos, but no two photos are ever the same because of the ever-changing light and skies.

The harbour at Balbriggan, built between 1761 and 1765 by local landlords the Hamilton Family, facilitated the growth of the commercial port at their estate village. The piers are made from limestone. The lighthouse was erected by the same family in 1769 and provided a sea light for vessels navigating off the east coast. The lighthouse is unique in having a clergyman, Reverand George Hamilton, as its first light keeper. A cast iron walkway surrounds the lantern.

Balbriggan is a seaside town in North County Dublin. 
According to P.W.Joyce the name arises from "Baile Breacain" which literally means "Brecans Town".  Brecan is a common medieval first name, and there are several other Brackenstowns in Ireland.  There is also a possible link to the local Bracken River, in which case the name could derive from breicin ( little trout)

The town was originally a small fishing village where King William of Orange and his army set up their camp after the Battle of the Boyne in 1690.  In !920 the town was burned and looted by the "Black and Tans" after a Royal Irish Constable was murdered during the 1916-21 War of Independence.
I took this shot of the lighthouse around 10:30pm.
