    We have a rather lovely local Irish version of this. Believed to be true by all locals.

    Yes, fictitious. It's an old joke that was one of the first "this is 100% 
    true" email forwards back in the early days of the Internet, circa 1996. 
    There's a nice write-up of the history of the story:  [LINK:

    lighthouse on snopes.com. There are many fun urban legends on snopes. Here's 
    a goofy one involving  [LINK:

    tracking apps. You can spend hours in there exploring conspiracies, 
    confusions, and crazy tall tales...
