HelloI haven’t posted here in the last few months for a couple of reasons.

Ballycotton is a small coastal fishing village about 25km east of cork city, Ireland. Besides the beaches and a 5km cliff walk, one of the main focal points is the lighthouse which was first commissioned in 1851 and was operated by lighthouse keepers until it was converted to electricity in 1975.
