Ireland’s only cable car has reached the grand age of 50 with a celebration held to mark the occasion, according to Cork County Council. 

Located along the Wild Atlantic Way, the Dursey Island cable car runs from the Beara Peninsula and links the mainland with the island. Some 22,000 people used the cable car last year. 

It was officially opened in 1969 by then Taoiseach Jack Lynch.
