The Rockytown Light

One of the great spooky stories of Inishowen concerns a mysterious fireball known as the Rockytown Light seen between Buncrana and Inishowen Head for hundreds of years up until the 1950’s, but for which we need to look to beautiful Kinnagoe Bay to hear about its provenance. Taken from Episode Three of our radio series, Rambling House, hear the great Dermot McLaughlin tell us all about it.

The Rockytown Light is referenced in one Buncrana child’s recollection in the Schools Collection by the Folklore Commission in 1938.
