    nobody any ideas on who it was?
    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    Defence Forces Press Office, DFHQ, Infirmary Road, Dublin 7
    Date: Thursday 14 June 2007
    Visit of Argentine Naval Vessel, the ARA Libertad:*
    Admiral William Brown Remembered
    *The Minister for Defence, the Argentine Chargé d’Affaires, Federico Guillermo Urrutia, the Chief of Staff of the Defence Forces, Lieutenant General Jim Sreenan and the Flag Officer Commanding the Naval Service, Commodore Frank Lynch will attend a Wreath Laying ceremony at the statue of Admiral William Brown at 11am on Friday 22nd of June, on Sir John Rogersons Quay, Dublin on the occasion of the visit to Ireland of the Argentinian Sail vessel “ARA Libertad”.
    The Ceremony will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the death of Admiral Brown, the Foxford born founder of the Argentine Navy and will form part of a busy programme of events, including a Wreath Laying and Museum Opening Ceremony in Foxford on Sunday 17th of June.
    On the visit of the Argentine Vessel, Lieutenant Commander Terry Ward of the Irish Naval Service says,
    “‘ARA Libertad’ is a 94metre long, 3,000 Tonne, three-mast sail training vessel. The main mast is 54 metres in height, and the ship is a spectacular sight in full sail.”
    “ARA Libertad” will dock in Galway from 16th to the 19th of June, in Dublin from the 21st to the 26th of June and will be open to the public for limited periods in both locations. The Commander in Chief of the Argentine Navy, Admiral Godoy, will be hosted by the Chief of Staff in McKee Barracks at 4.15pm on Thursday 21 June, where he will receive a 50 strong Naval Service Guard of Honour.
    The Naval Service is providing a rare and excellent opportunity for members of the Media to capture footage of “ARA Libertad” in full sail from the “LE ROISIN” on Friday 15th of June. Details of all media events are listed below.

    Further information on Admiral Brown and the Foxford connection can be found at:

    what does the ARA stand for
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    HMS Liverpool currently in cork.

    However much more worth a look on the south channel of the Lee is the Biodiesel fuelled boat.

    Ship in Dublin

    Sorry about this guys could not find the thread for Foreign Ships visiting (thought I saw it in th epast on this site). In any vent spotted a vessels at Sir John Rogersons Quay, Dublin last week (17 July). Did not get to establish nationality but it was warship grey and a rather old vessel by the look of it. Anybody know anymore?

    By happy coincidence was in Cadiz, Spain two weeks ago, the Libertad was moored alongside and open for visitors. Spoke to some of the crew who remembered their Irish visit with affection.

    French Naval School at Sir John Rogerson Quay - 8 June 2007. Present were A748 Leopard, A749 Panthère, A750 Jaguar, A754 Tigre, A755 Lion, P674 D'Entrecasteux. The school is a regular sight in the summers, although some of the training ships are looking a little rough. A752 Guépard was on tour and visited Leith and Galway, but wasn't present in Dublin. The other ships in class are A751 Lynx and A753 Chacal.

    perfect for the job required no need for large weapons and by the look of it no stupid exec that we used to have worrying about rust streaks and what people would think even though we were tons heavier from painting to look good..

    That it, Paint everything! Hides a multitude. Deck fittings were seized, lights could not be opened or switches operated due to the amount of paint used.
    But a time comes when the 'chipping hammers' would have to be used to clear the decks. Once wittnesed the bridge window being shattered when a stray hammer missed it's mark. Great windows for withstanding heavy seas, but useless against a tap from a chipping hammer!
