Ending the week with another drawing but in this case one to save lives rather than the dreadful murder of Mrs. O'Neill in Crook. Today we have a drawing of the proposed lighthouse for Inishtrahull off the coast of Donegal. It looks so simple in that form though the actual building must be strong and durable as well as serviceable!
