    Interesting that she is an unarmed version of a class of frigate that is in service with the Brazillian Navy.

When RN and USN vessels visit Cork, there is a Uniformed garda patrolling both sides of the river, the ship can only be accessed by means of an electronic gate, and there are detectives always near at hand. On some occasions, the Garda Boat, or a RIB from the NS patrols the waterside of the vessel.
    Of course, a number of years ago a number of SF/IRA types tried to board a RN destroyer... And that was almost the last mistake they made. On another occasion, a similar subversive criminal type tried to throw a petrol bomb at another Destroyer. His arrest was swift and painful.
    Was that the day a friendly chief diver saluted a shinner onboard with a knuckle sandwich?

    They're both training vessels, so is this a regular annual training cruise?

    Dutch Frigate in Dublin Port over the weekend. HMNLS Van Galen F834 was moored down the docks over the weekend still flying the Dutch flag. Curiously the ship was sold to the Portugese Navy by contract of 1st November 2006 due to be delivered on 1st November 2009. So she must close to her last cruise under the Dutch flag.

    On a related question will naval ships continue to moor on Sir John Rogerson's quay or does the installation of the new Samuel Beckett bridge constrain mooring possibilities here. If this is the case it will no longer be possible to view visitors to Dublin at close quarters as the the moorings in the port proper are inaccessible.

    Crossed the East-Link today and saw her across the river in Alexandra Basin. She's near the entrance to the basin, so you can see her clearly from the south side of the river.

    Unfortunately eirigi know about this.

    Another point to note is that there wont be anymore british warships going alongside south city quays anymore after what happened when Hms Mersey was there last August.
