Lambay and Rockabill
by brenno  1 Sep 2016
First time out on Lambay last Friday on a gorgeous day on a college reunion. Went with Skerries Sea Tours who also provided a guide around the island. Great two hours for anybody into geology, seabird life and marine stuff - like the ship out of Liverpool to Australia that went aground back in the 1850's with 300 losing their lives. Seems the very inexperienced captain thought they were off France! Many of those who died are buried in a mass grave on the island. After the Lambay walk (well covered in earlier posts) , went on to go around Rockabill lighthouse off Skerries - again great for bird and seal watchers. Great day out but maybe only in good weather. High point on Lambay at 124m not going to challenge anybody but hey it's on the list to be chalked off. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1370/comment/18629/
