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.
Do you know where she will be docked goldie. ot is that information in the public domain?could be worth a trip to dublin perhaps!
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"
Eithne was in London afew years back and the Peacocks visited Liverpool regularly, If I remember correctly Eithne also visted Belfast in the not to distant past.
Pay them properly.....and they will come!
