The mushroom that’s home to a thousand starlings. 

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. 

Well there you go, a photo & a history lesson. Every day’s a school day!
