This old tower once held the entrance to Carrickfergus harbour.
It now stands a rusty skeleton sheltering Starlings by night, seagulls by day and of course the occasional fisherman hiding from the rain.
The town of Carrickfergus sits on the shores of Belfast Lough – County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
It’s an interesting town stepped in history. Boasting an immaculate castle that dates back to the year 1177!
The town also hosts a medieval church & great town walls, it was once the capital of Northern Ireland a title that now belongs to Belfast.
