Great Lighthouses of Ireland
Visually spectacular this series tells the fascinating story of Ireland’s lighthouses and their continuing importance in modern Irish life. Featuring stunning footage of Ireland's lighthouses the series reveals how Ireland became a world leader in lighthouse engineering. Often working in hostile and treacherous natural locations, our lighthouse engineers and builders used great ingenuity to achieve what seemed practically impossible.
Using archive footage and meeting some of the lighthouse keepers, Great Lighthouses of Ireland illustrates our dependence on the sea, our battle with the elements, the engineering, history, science and above all the people behind these extraordinary buildings, and the pivotal role they have played in historic events.
