The first time he saw Roche’s Point Lighthouse, marking Cork Harbor, John Eagle knew he was smitten. “Coming from an inland town, there was so much excitement in the sea,” he explains, “and lighthouses encapsulated all that.”
John Eagle’s passion for lighthouses and their history is evident in the pages of his latest book. Through his spectacular photography and brief histories, it is plain to see where that passion comes from.
Eagle’s new soft cover book is 210 pages and features 81 lighthouses. The book is broken down by county with a listing of each lighthouse with one or more incredible photographs of each along with brief history, characteristic details and even directions on how to get there.
A fun book to browse through and read; and the perfect companion book to take with you on your next trip to Ireland, even if that trip is only through the pages of John Eagle’s latest book.
The book is available from the publisher at www.collinspress.com.
