Lighthouse Footage Captures Shocking Force Of Water As Storm Rages

Wow! What incredible footage taken from inside of the lantern of the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse this morning during Storm Barra. 

Míle buíochas le Paul Barron (videgrapher) Ronnie O'Driscoll, Dave Purdy and Malcolm Gillies who are currently working out on the lighthouse when the storm hit. It certainly gives greater appreciation and admiration not only for how solid the design and construction of the tower is, but also for the mental agility of the former Lighthouse keepers who stayed out on the rock for many weeks at a time and faced many a storm, and without phones or broadband I hasten to add! Wonderfully unique too, to see the lighthouse from a different perspective! Wind speed reached 74 kts (Force 12) with gusts up to 87 kts (Hurricane). 

We haven't ventured out too far to assess if there has been any damage down around the island but no immediate reports at least.”
