Moville Coastguard Station

The Coastguard Station is about a 15 minute walk from Moville's Market Square.  The only info I found on the station was from the Coastguards of Yesterday website which is below.

In April 1901 Father got promoted and we moved to Coastguard Station Moville on the north shore of Lough Foyle in the Innishowen peninsula.  The Coastguard Station Moville contained 14 families in two blocks of seven cottages.  Today they are holiday homes.

  1. What a handsome building. It was obviously built to last and seems well cared-for.

  4. Loved the link and the comment that narrator was "unlucky to die, too much spirit." I am a little confused on dates. On your post, who is the "Father" who was promoted? Love the building and am pleased that it has been so well-maintained.

    1. I believe that the "Father" mentioned was the father of Bernard William Wheyman. That article stated that was an extract of the autobiography of Bernard William Wheyman.

  6. I agree, a fine strong building Bill, would the sea be just off to the left there?

  11. The place has a military or even monastic austerity. Irish taste in holiday accommodations must be different from ours.
