For one hundred years now, it has withstood everything the Atlantic can hurtle against it. This book provides a detailed account, in words and pictures, of how this 'architectural gem' was built on one of the most hazardous sites in Europe and under the most perilous conditions. It also recounts lighthouse life from several perspectives. And it tells of the wonderful courage and spirit of those who have dedicated their lives to the protection of seafarers down the decades.

'A wonderful new book.'  Liam Collins, The Sunday Independent

'A glorious book.' John Burns, The Sunday Times

'An invaluable addition to the growing canon of lighthouse literature.'  Lorna Siggins, author and journalist
