Photographer's Note

I took this photograph on a recent visit to Howth in the north Dublin area.A beautiful little coastal town with a yaught club and a large fishing fleet.This monument has been erected and dedicated to all those lost at sea.
The monument was unvieled by the then president of Ireland Mary Robinson in March 1994.
An inscription on the back explains the design of the memorialand reads:

The cross represents the love of God,
The rope edge and shell motif,his nets.
The anchor reflects our dependence on him,
The rock....the safety of the land,
The swirlling stones...the dangers of the sea,
The twelve sides... the months of the year,
The hooped railing...the rise and fall of the waves.
