  • Moville Moville (Irish: Bun an Phobail) is a coastal town located on the Inishowen Peninsula of County Donegal, Ireland, close to the northern tip of the island of Ireland. It is the first coastal town of the Wild Atlantic Way when starting on the northern end. The town has a scenic location on the western shore of Lough Foyle, approximately 30 kilometres (20 mi) from Derry, which lies across the border in Northern Ireland. Features include Moville Green, a large seaside park in the Victorian style with bandstands, walking trails, playgrounds, a coastal footpath and views east across the lough to Northern Ireland. In the second half of the 19th century, Moville was a point of embarkation for emigrants, to Canada and the United States of America. Steamships of the Anchor Line of Glasgow, and others enroute from Glasgow to New York City called at Moville to pick up additional passengers. Today, the town receives little maritime traffic but retains a small fishing harbour. The commercial fishing port at Greencastle lies a few miles away. An annual regatta is held at Moville every year in August, and has done so since early in the 19th century. Moville Pile Lighthouse Moville Lighthouse or as its been call ‘The Eiffel Tower of Moville’ was built in 1882 is located about 550 metres offshore from the town, is 13.5 m (44 ft) high and flashes once every 2.5 seconds with a range of four miles. A red sector covers Moville Bank inshore. This was the largest in a series of 19th century pile lighthouses that helped guide ships down Lough Foyle to Derry, and is one of just three of its kind remaining in Ireland. The other two are located at Dundalk and Cobh. Responsibility for its operation and maintenance rests with Derry Port and Harbour Commissioners who completed restoration work in 2008. Keepers lived in town, but spent the night in the watch room. Bill McCann’s father, retired Captain Charlie McCann says he remembers when the lighthouse was lit by a paraffin lamp. A keeper would row out at night, light it and remain overnight in the single-roomed house on top in case the light went out. Since then, the lighthouse was converted to gas, and most recently, to solar power. The Fid The Fid, sited in a prominent position, on the Old Stone Pier in the town of Moville, the impressive structure was designed by local artist Locky Morris. Inspired by an actual Fid - a conical pin of hardwood used by fishermen for splicing ropes and nets and by sailmakers for opening holes in the sails without tearing the material. The artist came across the hand held tool during his research as part of the long-line fishing basket display in the Inishowen Maritime Museum in Greencastle. The striking wooden structure was carved from a single oak trunk and is over 30 feet high and over 3 feet wide at its base, the large upright structure symbolises an ancient name of the place itself, Maigh Bhile ‘the plain of the sacred tree’ and represents Moville’s rich fishing and emigration history. In the 19th and 20th centuries the old pier was a point of departure for hundreds and thousands of Irish emigrant leaving their homeland to make the arduous onward journey to America and Canada being carried out in small boats to the ships moored beyond the Moville light, many settled in the Province of New Brunswick, Canada. The Anchor Line ticket Office for the emigration boats was located just off the old pier and the pier itself is one of the last, despite only being built in 1829 by Congested Districts Board for Ireland. Primarily for small fishing boats the old pier still remains working today. Book: Across the Atlantic www.donegalcoco.ie/media/donegalcountyc/archives/pdfs/Acr... Mussenden Temple – Downhill The Mussenden Temple is located in the beautiful surroundings of Downhill Demesne near Castlerock in County L/Derry. It’s perched dramatically on a 120ft cliff top, high above the Atlantic Ocean on the north-western coast of Northern Ireland, offering spectacular views westwards over Downhill Strand towards Magilligan Point and across to Inishowen in County Donegal and to the east, Castlerock beach towards Portstewart, Portrush and Fair Head. The temple was built in 1785 and forms part of the estate of Frederick Augustus Hervey, Bishop of Derry and Earl of Bristol (or the Earl Bishop) who served as the Church of Ireland Lord Bishop of Derry from 1768 until 1803. The temple was built as a summer library and its architecture was inspired by the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli, near Rome. It is dedicated to the memory of Hervey's cousin Frideswide Mussenden. Over the years the Temple itself was under danger of being lost to the sea due to the erosion of the cliff which brought the temple ever closer to the edge. In 1997 the National Trust carried out cliff stabilisation work to prevent the loss of this beautiful historic landmark. The inscription around the building reads: "Suave, mari magno turbantibus aequora ventis e terra magnum alterius spectare laborem." "Tis pleasant, safely to behold from shore The troubled sailor, and hear the tempests roar." Martello Tower – Magilligan The Martello tower was built towards the end of the wars in 1812 and it was one of the most northerly of the 74 constructed all around the coasts of Ireland to fire on any invading fleet. The British original plan was to build a fort at Magilligan point but this turned out to be impractical due to the soft ground. It is one of 74 constructed to fire on any invading fleet and withstand lengthy sieges. It has three floors, and its walls are 9ft thick. A round dressed sandstone tower (from the Ballyharrigan quarries in Bovevagh), originally housing a 24 pound cannon mounted on the top. It was fastened to a central pivot and moved on a circular rail so that it could point in all directions. The tower has 9ft thick walls with three floors, and was built on top of a spring to ensure fresh water in case of a siege. Below the gun platform were the living quarters and the ground floor was used to store powder and ammunition. A similar tower but with double-gunned exists in Greencastle, on the other side of Lough Foyle. During World War II the top of the tower was fitted out with a pillbox. Since the tower was built, deposits of sand have extended the peninsular by several hundred metres and the tower is now located a considerable distance from the sea. Magilligan (from Irish: Ard Mhic Giollagáin, meaning "Magilligan's height") is a peninsula that lies in the northwest of County of Derry at the entrance to Lough Foyle. It is a huge 79,000 acres coastal site, part British Army firing range and part nature reserve. Cornashamma Bay Cornashamma Bay, known locally as "Sweet Nellie", is a secluded beach and is located on the north coast of Ireland a mile to the southwest of Inishowen Lighthouse on the eastern side of the Inishowen Peninsula. It provided another anchoring opportunity along the eastern Inishowen shoreline. Cornashamma Bay has no facilities and the nearest supplies can be found in the fishing village of Greencastle, the small town of Moville or alternatively the small village of Stroove a few miles north of the village of Greencastle off the R238 Warren Light Is located at the entrance to Lough Foyle, 2.4 km southwest of the Inishowen or Shove Lighthouse and beside the 12th Tee of Greencastle Golf Club which is just north of Greencastle town. Built in 1861 the Warren Point Lighthouse or Warren Light has a Focal Plane of (a height from the water level to the light) of 9m (30 ft). The brick cylindrical tower is 8m (27ft) in height is painted white with a green trim and the white light flashes every 1.5 seconds. This light is managed by the Derry Port and Harbour Commissioners and site managed by Greencastle Golf Club. www.londonderryport.com/port-operations/navigation-and-pi...
