Duncannon North Rear Range Light

"Duncannon, Co Wexford, Ireland"


Built: 1838

"This harbour light was originally built at Roche's Point in 1817. It was felt to be too small for that location, so it was dismantled and re-built at Duncannon. It is located three miles north of the entrance to Waterford Harbour on the Wexford shore. Along with the Duncannon Fort Light (Front Range) it forms a pair of range lights (leading lights) guiding ships over the bar of Duncannon. It was originally oil-burning but was converted to acetylene in 1937 and to electricity in 1971."
