    Pretty sure it was Portsmouth, think the fire-fighting lads when to Plymouth.
    I didn`t go was taken off to go on Grainne for salmon patrol and then went to R.N.A.S. Culrose to do S.A.R. course so I went to both Portsmouth and Plymouth but without the ship then rejoined Eithne after.
    Therefore no photos
    What do you mean abandon ship
    Are they taking requests?

    A number of French training vessels are visiting Cork this weekend, arriving on the 12th. All are familiar sights in Cork at this stage. Crustymedia is kicking up a storm of course as the Marine nationale prepare to invade Ireland in four trawler size training vessels.
    The Vessels are Chacal, Gepard, Leopard and Tigre. All are similar to Chacal, seen here.

    Admirante Condell FF-06, from Chile is also due in Dublin on the 17th. Definitely named after an Irishman.
    Formerly HMS Marlborough, a Duke Class Frigate, prematurely disposed from RN service.

    Don't know. I'll be in France myself. Check the Dublin Port website for more details closer to the date.

    Did you notice her motto: "Vencer O Morir", something like "Victory Or Death"

    Wrong thread folks. This is about foreign ships visiting Ireland, Not Irish ships visiting foreign ports.

    she's in town now.





    She seems to be bristling with weaponry. They took the trouble to stash the rubbish out of sight of the visitors and I had to ruin it for them.
