Commissioners of Irish Lights

Commissioners of Irish Lights as the General Lighthouse Authority for the Island of Ireland and the adjacent seas and islands, operate an all-island coastal network infrastructure consisting of 250+ onshore and offshore sites and platforms (lighthouses, buoys and other aids to navigation) with associated monitoring and communications systems. This extensive and unique network around the entire coast of Ireland sits strategically at the periphery of Europe. Along with Irish Lights’ expertise, this infrastructure offers many opportunities to the marine industry in general. More specifically the Irish Lights’ sites offer prime locations for remote monitoring equipment, environment data acquisition and telemetry devices for the renewable energy, environmental, fishing and marine safety sectors.
