Temporary Glandore Buoy - Buoy Move

09 - 2003

Issue Date: Monday 14 July 2003

Aid: Glandore Buoy

Area: Glandore South West

As a consequence of the destruction of the lighted Glandore South West Beacon by storm damage this buoy was established for the purpose of marking 'The Dangers' rocks and to indicate the preferred Western Channel which is the primary access channel to Glandore and Union Hall.

This notice advises mariners that the buoy has been moved approximately 90 metres west north west from its original position in order to provide an improved approach to the Western Channel and to give vessels using this preferred channel better clearance to the west of 'The Dangers' Rock.
Mariners are advised to refer to the up to date Admiralty Chart and Sailing Directions and to use caution when navigating in this area.

Radio Navigational Warnings have been issued advising of this buoy move. Broadcasts will continue for a period of not less than two weeks from the issue of this notice. The Commissioners of Irish Lights hereby give notice that the new position of the Temporary Glandore buoy is as follows:




 51° 33.105' N 09° 06.638' W WGS 84
