Losing the head

Just for a change, I’ve put up a new header photo showing a Shannon 1. The photo was taken from Shannon Airport; you can see Ringmoylan Quay on the far side of the river and the beacon on the right is (I think) on the Horse Rock.

  1. Hi. That photo on your banner is very good but had me puzzled as I didn’t know what the beacon was. It is not the horse rock as that was a lighthouse until it finally got blown away in the Storm Darwin this year. The picture has a strong zoom and so the beacon must be in Shannon. I live in Ringmoylan and that’s a great picture of the pier from the Clare side. My Grandfather was the lighthouse keeper on the Horse Rock Lightouse

  2. Thanks, Paul. I don’t know the name of the marker but the photo was taken from here. bjg
