And a fine building it is, the watchtower of the station stands out unmistakably as you drive up from keel towards keeme, I tried to see if they held any old photos of the station crew, but the owner Dr,O'Leary was on duty at the local surgery. As my great grandfather served there around 1900.
he is at achill beg as station officer in the 1901 census,and know he served at both but not the order, I believe he was at ventry,co kerry before that,my gran was born there in 1889, I'm trying to trace his naval and coastguard history,his name was Joseph holbry from plymouth
