Where the River Boyne Meets the Sea

Mornington, County Meath

20th November 2012

Such a difference a day makes.  Yesterday the waves were thrashing against the beacon here , and the rocks that mark the entrance to Drogheda port were completely submerged in water.

The Cooley mountains can be seen in the background

A wild at windy day at Bettystown beach, the tide was right in up to the dunes, all the way along the beach.  This only happens about twice per year.

Boyne estuary in Mornington.
This is a nice tranquil place to visit in the evenings, and there are usually a few fishermen here as well.
The village of Mornington on the Boyne Estuary was known as Marinestown in the 13th century.Two beacons mark the mouth of the Boyne and warn ships of the river bar at Mornington. Built during the war with o'Neill whan a Spanish invasion was feared, there is still mystery surrounding them.
