    Installation of a lightning protection system

Following contact from Ivor McElveen Associates, Lightning Protection Ireland was awarded the contract to install a lightning protection system at the landmark round tower at Ferrycarrig in Co. Wexford. The tower dates from the 19th century and was built as a monument to the Irishmen who fought in the Battle of The Crimea.

This was part of a full restoration of the monument. Lightning Protection Ireland installed two bare copper down-tapes to the external wall, two earths, and an air finial.
