The lighthouse on Oyster Island

Freestanding two-stage lighthouse, built 1932. Circular plan, small flat-roofed extension to east. Painted metal-clad polygonal dome. Faceted metal-framed glazed lantern. Tooled limestone platform, limestone corbels, wrought-iron balustrade. Battered unpainted ruled-and-lined smooth-rendered walling to shaft, tooled limestone chamfered plinth. Painted smooth-rendered walling to extension. Square-headed window openings to shaft, smooth-rendered reveals, painted stone sills, painted eight-over-eight timber sash windows, iron grillage to ground floor window. Square-headed door opening, painted vertically-sheeted timber door, steel grille c. 1995, stone step. Painted circular rubble stone boundary wall, semi-circular tooled ashlar coping, painted steel gate. Located on north shore of Oyster Island.

This squat little lighthouse was rebuilt in 1932 as a rear leading-light to the Metal Man beacon to the north-west at the entrance to the straight between Oyster Island and Rosses Point. It is a prominent landmark of architectural and technical interest.

Many have trod 
this sandy beach 
seeking for shells. 
Along the shore 
their footprints merge 
in shifting sands. 
Rising and falling 
the ocean sighs 
and washes all. 
I stand alone 
at water's edge. 
I have no shells. 
Looking back 
I cannot tell 
the way I came.

Curious to my view 
I periodically see 
Unique vertical creations… 
Rocks stacked incredibly 
There is a human tendency 
To form natural sculptures 
In my immediate community 
I see them more and more 
In a field near a stop sign 
With no one to claim the fame 
Posing boldly as can be 
Standing out from the terrain 
On the bend of a back road 
By an old mill… basking in the sun 
Several columns side by side 
Consisting of rocks… one on one 
Placed near a flowering garden 
As a squirrel with pouched cheeks 
Stands on hind legs and takes notice 
As though those rocks could speak 
There seems to be a trend 
That captures the imagination… 
A inclination to put things in balance 
With a cementing fascination 
This intriguing creative movement 
Is teasing my wondering sight 
Why do people desire to balance 
stones… to delight with poised height

Benbulbin, the view from Yeats' county
Catching the rays

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

William Butler Yeats,

Visible for miles on most of the journey into Yeats Country (Sligo), Benbulben, as well as the entirety of the Dartry Mountains of which it is a part, is a limestone and mudstone rock formation formed by glaciers during the ice age. This unique flat-top beauty features in many legends and has inspired literature from some of the best Irish poets, including W.B. Yeats, who is buried close by and has an eternal view of this stunning mountain.

One more surf shot just because its #californiasurfingday - you could call Norcal & Ireland twin locations as they’re quite similar...cold & perfect on the right day!

Benbulben is Ireland's most distinctive mountain and known in some parts as Ireland's version of Table Mountain. 
Many legends and tales have been woven round the almost magical mountain that is Benbulben.

I think the real talent is the fact I managed to keep my glasses on the whole time I practiced handstands 🤓 •
