In 1992 Mizen Tourism Co-operative Society Ltd. was registered with ICOS and the adventure began. In 1993 Mizen Head Fog Signal Station was automated. The Irish Lights Keepers left the station on April 1 1993. Mizen Tourism had a lease from the Commissioners for Irish Lights for the path over the Bridge to the point and three houses at the Signal Station. The story is in the file at the end of this page. The display shows photos from before the project started and the Mizen road ended in a chain across the road. The Signal Station was private property. To turn the car you had to go on the grass as the road was so narrow. The first Visitor Centre was a portacabin that faced into the hill. If it had been turned round the door would have been torn off with the wind! We had a kettle and served tea, coffee, snack biscuits and crisps. We have come a long way in 25 years!
