Dur­ing the dark years of the Sec­ond World War, Ire­land’s light­house keep­ers acted as an un­of­fi­cial coast guard, keep­ing de­tails logs of the var­i­ous com­ings and go­ings, from sight­ings of Ger­man sub­marines to the hor­ror of civil­ian ships be­ing tor­pe­doed and at­tacked. They saved lives, and played a piv­otal role in his­tor­i­cal events.
