The most easterly point in Ireland, a nesting site for terns but formerly a place of Danish Burial

Burr Point, the most easterly point in Ireland, is Burial Island, now a nesting site for terns but formerly a place of Danish Burial. Burr Point is located at longitude 5.43 degrees west, 2km south of Ballyhalbert. Just above Burr Point stands a dis-used Coast Guard Tower, which was in use in 1863 and was one of 12 which made up the Donaghadee district.
