Dedication

Front Inscription

This cairn is a monument dedicated to local fishermen from this port who have paid the ultimate price and lost their lives in pursuit of their livelihood.

Down to the sea in ships they go these chosen men of steel, though mist & foam and North West wind is founding at the keel.

So sail they must each crispy morn away from trees & sod, the sea may own their wind burned flesh, but their souls belong to God.
