The lightvessel Gannet (commonly known as a lightfloat) was built in 1954 and was retired from service in February 2009. I was the last lighfloat in service in Ireland. It formerly rotated between stations at South Rock and Coningberg with two other lighfloats. It was viewed moored in Dun Laoghaire harbour and as of May 2009 was for sale. Photos taken in May 2009.
