Baltimore Beacon

Our new sculptural beacon, whilst impressive in its construction from beach pebbles, is not quite on the grand scale of Baltimore Beacon.

This white-painted stone beacon is found at the entrance to the harbour at Baltimore in West Cork. It was built following the 1798 Rebellion and forms part of a series of lighthouses and beacons dotted around the Irish coast.

The locals call it Lot's Wife, after the biblical story of the woman turned into a pillar of salt. I wonder if our beacon will assume a nickname?
