Photographer's Note

Historically, Skerries has been a thriving fishing port and a major center of hand embroidery. In the late 20th century, it became a resort town (golf, sailing, motorcycling, etc.), and a desirable suburb for commuters to the city of Dublin. A Holiday camp was set up on Red Island in the 1950’s but was later torn down in the 1970’s as foreign holidays became cheaper and more popular. Red Island is now an amenity area for the local community, with a playground, and swimming areas. The railway station at Skerries is served by trains operating on the Dundalk - Dublin - Arklow route. Recently the Skerries Mills were restored by Fingal County Council as a local amenity and tourist attraction. There are 2 fully restored and working windmills, watermill and a museum and coffee shop. - from Wikipedia
