This lighthouse dates from the 13th.Century and is the oldest lighthouse in Great Britain and Ireland. The original tower structure, which still stands within the more recently built outer structure, was built by the Normans to guide their ships in and out of Waterford Estuary. The Hook Head area of County Wexford is the site of the first Norman landings in Ireland. The clouds and crashing Atlantic waves suggest unsettled weather and are a reminder of the importance of these great structures.
