Description Rev. Edward Spring was leasing this property from Sir H. Beecher at the time of Griffith's Valuation, when it was valued at £6. Cape Clear Island Youth Hostel's website indicates that it was originally the coastguard station and later occupied by Rev. Edward Spring as he tried to establish a protestant congregation on the island. In 1906 Sir John Becher owned a property valued at £10 at Glen East.
