History:
This light is classified as a sea light as distinct from a harbour light although it does mark the entrance into Lough Swilly which forms a natural harbour of refuge. In 1812 the frigate Saldana was wrecked on Fannet Point, as it was called then, and became a total loss except for the ship’s parrot which bore a silver collar inscribed Saldana. Soon after the loss of this vessel Captain Hill of the Royal Navy in Derry, whose experience of the northwest coast from Blacksod to Lough Foyle was second to none, wrote to one of the members of the Corporation’s Board suggesting that a lighthouse should be placed on Fannet Point. He also backed up his request by stating that the Saldana would not have been lost if there had been a light on Fannet. Without question the Board approved Captain Hill’s request and they approached Trinity House, who gave their sanction in July 1814. The Admiralty Signal Tower on Fannet was taken over ostensibly to be used as a keeper’s dwelling and also to prevent local inhabitants dismantling it for their own devices but it seems to have been taken down and used by the Corporation when the lighthouse and dwellings were built. These were designed by the Corporation’s Inspector George Halpin. The first lighthouse was similar in size to two other towers being built around the same time, one at Mutton Island off Salthill, Galway Bay and the other at Roche’s Point on the eastern entrance to Cork harbour. They were 5 feet 9 inches inside diameter by three stories high - ground, first floor and lantern. Roche’s Point was subsequently replaced by a larger 11 foot 6 inch diameter tower; the original small tower was taken down and rebuilt at Blackhead, northeast of Duncannon Fort on the east side of the entrance into Waterford Harbour to form a leading light with the already established light at the Fort. The Fort light became the front light and the Blackhead light became the rear or North Duncannon light. The Deed of Conveyance for the property was signed and money paid to Lord Leitrim in Leitrim in April 1818 in accordance with the Inquisition dated October 1814. Fannet Point was first lit on 17th March 1817 and its fixed or non-flashing catoptric light showed red to sea and white towards the Lough, and could be seen for fourteen miles in clear weather. The optic consisted of nine Argand sperm oil wick lamps and parabolic reflectors. The seaward lamps would have had red coloured lamp glasses. One of the first requests for better lighting in the immediate vicinity of Lough Swilly came from the Duke of Abercorn backed up by numerous signatories in a memorial dated March 1871. The request was referred to Trinity House who inspected the area in 1872 and in their report recommended Fanad Head to be converted to a second order dioptric fixed lens with a red sector over the Swilly Rocks. They also agreed that lights should be established at Dunree Head and Buncrana Pier. Work went ahead on both these lights and they were established on 15th January 1876. Fanad was slower in its changeover. During 1875 the Engineer, Mr Sloane, estimated for improvements at Fanad together with a light to mark the Limeburner Rock. Then in 1876 gas was suggested instead of colza or rape seed oil. This would have meant the construction of a gas works similar to Tory Island and certain other rock and mainland stations. Trinity House made yet another recommendation in 1877, this time that Tory Island be altered to a first order group flashing light and the old Tory Island lens to be fitted into a new tower built at Fanad with a sectional light to show from the base of the tower over the Limeburner Rock. Still nothing was done until 1880 when the Inspecting Committee recommended adopting the Engineer’s and Inspector’s report (Mr W. Douglass and Captain Cole) for an occulting second order light using paraffin showing white with a red sector over the Swilly Rocks and a lower white sector light over the Limeburner Rock. Construction went ahead and a new larger and higher tower, close to the original tower was built together with an extra dwelling. In both cases a connecting corridor joined the tower to the dwelling. The new lights went into operation on 1st September 1886, the main light was occulting white and red every thirty seconds with its fixed catadioptric second order lens and circular occulting screen around the burner turned by a small clockwork rotation machine which gave a character of 30 seconds. An auxiliary fixed white light in one of the windows at the base of the tower shone over the Limeburner Rock. The character of this light was changed in August 1932 to one white flash every 3 seconds (fl 0.33, ec 2.66) visible from 102 degrees to 112 degrees over Limeburner Rock. In August 1906 the Engineer, Mr C. W. Scott, presented an estimate to the Board to change the light to group flashing with an incandescent paraffin burner. Trinity House modified the proposed character so as no

IRELAND, WATERFORD CITY 1998 ---LICENSEPLATE WITH SHADOW FONTS





This very thick plastic license plate from Waterford City, Ireland is non-reflective with the serial number fonts giving a shadow effect. Depending on what angle you look at the plate the shadow effect will appear either darker of lighter. In this pic I took at a bit of an angle to show how the shadow effect appears darker to the left and fades to the right. This plate was first issued in 1998 as denoted by the prefix "98" followed by the Waterford City code of "W" and the serial number of "2139" as a suffix. The name Waterford appears top center in Gaelic.
