1861 – RNLI Boathouse, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin



Fine stone boathouse and slipway built for the launch of the lifeboat in times past. Due to size, the current lifeboat is now permanently moored in the harbour, so this little structure is used for storage. On Christmas Eve, 1895 while endeavoring to rescue the crew of the “Palme” lifeboat capsized with the loss of the entire fifteen man crew – their names are recorded in a stone memorial.
