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.
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
