Lisheen Pier is one of many small fishing harbours scattered around the sheltered waters of Roaringwater Bay. There
is no village here, just a scattering of modest houses and a short
concrete pier and a launching slip. There are a small number of
fishing boats moored alongside, most are part of the mussel fishing
trade. These strange metal fabrications are the anchors onto
which lines of rope are strung in long strands through the water.
The mussels are seeded onto the ropes to come to maturity in the clean
Atlantic tides. The boats from Lisheen Pier go out every day in
all weathers to harvest the mussels, many of which find their way to
the top dining tables in the best restaurants of Paris, London, and
Madrid. The blustery West wind is blowing a heavy squall across
the horizon, it will soak Lisheen in a few minutes, and then the sun
will come out again.
