Rathlin O’Birne

Rathlin O’Birne

The lighthouse is located on the uninhabited Rathlin O'Birne Island which lies two kilometers to the west of the Malin Beg coastline at the southwestern tip of Donegal, making it County Donegal's westernmost point.

In 1974 it became Ireland’s first and only nuclear powered lighthouse. However, by 1987, the power output of the nuclear generator had dwindled to an insufficient level and the lighthouse was converted to wind power, which was in use until 1991, at which point it was converted to solar power.

Material

Printed with archival pigment ink on 290gr art paper with a slightly textured silk finish.

Pigment inks are designed to be stable over long periods of time, allowing prints to be displayed (under proper conditions) for many decades.

All mounts and backing boards are lignin-free, alkaline-sized, pH neutral and are calcium carbonate buffered to enhance their useful lifespan by minimising the effect of atmospheric pollutants.

Care instructions

Avoid hanging in direct sunlight as this may cause the colours to fade and affect the paper.
