Rossbeigh Beach, County Kerry

Rossbeigh Beach, is part of the Glenbeigh village at the Ring of Kerry. I went there last Saturday with one of my students in the Killorglin Community College, Sean Golden. Sean had shown photos from the Tower on the beach and the poor state of the structure made me interested to take some photos myself. The Tower used to mark the entrance to Castlemaine Harbour and is called also Castlemaine Beacon. The Tower is badly damaged and needs to be repaired urgently or it will fall very soon. I hope the work is carried out soon, otherwise this landmark is lost for good.
In the background is Dingle Peninsula, covered in snow.

If you go there beware of soft sand during low tide, you can sink in.
