Lighthouse Trail to Conserve Maritime Heritage of Ireland

The Commissioners of Irish Lights (CIL) are celebrating the launch of the first ever all-Ireland lighthouse tourism trail with Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Leo Varadkar and Arlene Foster MLA, Minister for the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investement.

The launch will be held at Blackhead, Co. Antrim next Wednesday.

CIL are developing the lighthouse trail to preserve and conserve the maritime heritage of Ireland and re-invigorate an appreciation for lighthouses. The developments will see visitor facilities at every lighthouse on the trail allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the history of the site through Learning Zones, tours and even overnight in themed accommodation.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
