More action in the Harbour.
I'm sure you have all seen this one before, but it's worthy of a place in the Forum.

Yes fantastic. ;)

While we're here, just curious, what was the building at the end on the West Pier? Was that the Lighthouse keeper's house? Thanks.

As far as I know Strum -the light keepers house was on the East Pier.-Dont really know what the story was with the West Pier.-Maybe it was a house when the Pier was built first.-

It just doesn't have the same charm Grammer does it, maybe yes because it's neglected or or who knows? Read today the West Pier was known as the Admiratly Pier. Never heard that before.

We always called it the "fishing pier" and used to go down a few nights with our Da fishing off the end. It was crowded then with lads baiting hooks and topping and tiling the fish ...there were no hoses just the odd bucket of sea water thrown down to clean the place off. The seagulls would be milling around for the bits. We would just have the one bike and if we caught a lot the fish would be wheeled home and we would run along (good exercise!!). The taste of them fried in a bit of butter for the supper.

I also never saw that photo before. I prefer the west pier and I think the view from the west pier is far nicer than the one from the east pier.

You meet much nicer people on the west pier.

Agree with you on that NM, always preferred the West Pier, better for walking the girlfriend, less likely to meet her relations or indeed ones own Dad and Mam !!!

If those piers could only talk ...the amount of Luv stories they would tell. My grandparents, parents, relations and friends all walked them with their beaux.

On another note. Can anybody find a face on photo of that house at the end of the West Pier. I've trawled through 100's of them and can't find a decent one. Also little information about what it was used for? I assume Lighthouse keepers place?
Here's the only one I can find but it's the wrong angle, that's what I mean by face on photo. Any help appreciated. :D

Apparently built in 1863. There must hve been a lighthouse keeper stationed there at one time, before it became the Principal Keeper's residence in 1949.

Grammer,

I'll have to take that planning application with me when I walk the site. There seems to be a lot of alterations on the land side not to mention all the dredging to make the deep water channel and turning place at sea. billions of Euros I'd say . While they are dredging out the channel to Dublin they might as well put in a tunnel and that would be a quick way to Dublin!! :shock: :o :D

I don't recall this particular image being posted before - interesting display of buildings in the vicinity of Victoria Wharf. You can make out Railway Station wall and roof line of Crofton Road too.

The building in the middle background looks like but is not the Station. I'm supposing its the side of the Yact Club. Gulliver?
