Roche's Point , Co. Cork, Ireland

The photo above shows the STV Asgard II passing Roche's Point. The site was established in 1817 at the entrance to Cork Harbor, with a smal tower that was taken down and rebuilt at Duncannon, Waterford Harbour.

The present 15 meter tower was built in 1835, and is a familiar site to Swansea-Cork ferry passengers and Cobh and Crosshaven yachtsmen. Roche's Point Light stands 30 meters above the sea.
