    Background: IN EIRE, A FLOATING LIGHTHOUSE IS ON ITS WAY TO ITS POSITION JUST OUTSIDE DUBLIN BAY. BUT IT IS MAKING SLOW PROGRESS. THE 7,500-TON LIGHTHOUSE TRAVELLED ONLY A FEW HUNDRED FEET WHEN IT BEGAN THE JOURNEY NORTH FROM DUN LAOGHAIRE YESTERDAY (MONDAY).

    THE LIGHTHOUSE, KNOWN AS THE KISH, IS BEING TOWED BY TWO TUGS AT A COST OF GBP500 A DAY. IT WAS BUILT IN DUN LAOGHAIRE, AND A SPECIAL CHANNEL HAD TO BE CUT IN THE HARBOUR TO TAKE IT AWAY FROM THE CONSTRUCTION YARD. BY NIGHTFALL, IT DROPPED ANCHOR NEAR THE HARBOUR ENTRANCE.

    THE JOURNEY IS ONLY NINE MILES (14.5 KMS), BUT FOR THE KISH DUBLIN IS NOT EXPECTED TO HOVE INTO SIGHT UNTIL THE END OF THE WEEK.
