Coastal Hill
by sandman  10 Jul 2017
During the time of Napoleon Bonaparte the powers in Dublin built a large number of signal towers all around the Irish Coast the ruins of one sits atop of Doon Hill .They were under British navy control with a lieutenant in charge and manned by farmers ,fishermen and merchants. Some 133 years later in the early days of World War Two the Irish government in order to protect its neutrality decided that a series of lookout posts would be built around the coast to monitor activity at sea. These posts were manned by soldiers who were called the Coast Watching Service. Today on Doon Hill sits a well preserved Irish military post set in the ruins of a British military post. Doon Hill on approach is very aesthetic, access is either along the foreshore from Bunowen pier or thru a private entrance located at L5995143169 A which seems to be the original entrance to the castle and on to the military constructed tract to the summit. Overlooking Bunowen Castle and the Quay views are fab all around. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5025/comment/19598/
