Near the border of Northern Ireland and the Republic sits a famous lighthouse which has been illuminated in memory of people who have died in Carlingford Lough.
The Haulbowline Lighthouse, writes the Irish Examiner, is situated on the Lough, separating Co Louth and Co Down, and is thought to be the first and only lighthouse in Ireland and the UK to be externally illuminated.
The 34-metre tall lighthouse will remain lit up for the month of August to remember all those who have lost their lives there.
Carlingford Lough experienced its worst maritime disaster in 1916 when a coalship collided with a passenger ferry bound for Holyhead out of Greenore.
The disaster claimed the lives of 97 people, including passengers and crew. Only one person, a fireman on the collier, survived.
