"In January 2005, the three General Lighthouse Authorities (GLAs) of the UK and Ireland issued a consultation document following a joint review of Aids to Navigation of the coasts of the United Kingdom and Ireland. As a result of this review it was agreed to discontinue the light at Killantringan, which only served as 'waypoint'. Killantringan Lighthouse was therefore permanently discontinued with effect from 11 July 2007." Quoted from the Northern Lighthouse Board website.
