Welcome to the Signal Towers Website
In 2006 the 200rd anniversary of the building of the Signal Towers defence system was celebrated round the coast of Ireland, from Malin Head in Northern Donegal round the coast to Dublin. A website was set up to give details of the events that each of the local communities organised. That site expired in October 2006, so this one takes its place as a permanent reminder of all that happened.
The Beara Historical Society, who organised the Signal Towers Festival from here in Beara, would like to thank all the local community groups who participated, with the events they created drawing people together for a summer of fun.
Unlike the old site this one has a map you can click on to view the individual towers around the country. Each site has pictures of the tower and the event that took place beside it. If you would like to contribute pictures of the event to this website please contact me by clicking the button above, or if you would just like to contribute something.
