Welcome

This site is dedicated to the Coastguards who lived and worked around the Irish coastline between the 18th and early 20th centuries. It includes a collection of CG station photos as well as facts and figures about the people , births, deaths, census information, etc. I have also included some fascinating accounts of bravery during rescues from shipwrecks as well as interesting Extracts of shipwrecks and rescues, etc. If you have any queries or input, please let me know.
