View of Eagle Island - Photo by MickReynolds

This rocky headland is a great spot to get a unique shooting view of Eagle Island and its lighthouses. When the lighthouses were first built in the 1840s there were two lighthouses and seven dwelling houses on Eagle Island. By 1911 there was only one dwelling house left on the island. Despite the erection of a massive storm wall to protect the lighthouses, one of the lighthouses was destroyed by the severe storms and its remains still litter the ground it used to stand on. Eagle Island is located close to the edge of the Continental Shelf and is constantly pounded by powerful waves from the Atlantic Ocean. (Aghernagallagh, County Mayo, Ireland)
