          ya! still using the same Fuji camera, I found it so hard to get a decent shot as there was no room on the quay! I was really surprised no one thought of erecting a screen or even some flags, it was a little tight with the cars and trucks passing a foot or so from the back of the chairs, it was nice to see office workers opposite the ship give the new skipper loads of support, they had posted messages on the windows, anyway best of luck to her.. a pretty good ship handler I hear from pilots..

            can i ask why she took command in galway is just because the ship is twinned with galway?
            But there's no danger
            It's a professional career

                  You might even get a starring role given your connection with Aisling.

                  haven't heard anything about it.

                  The ex-naval officer I assume is one head of water safety who is an absolute gentleman, My regards to him.

                      I came across TG4's Mná Na Mara tonight. I just saw a few minutes of it. Looked interesting, following a female L.E. Roisín officer. The programme is likely to be repeated.

                          Lt Cdr Orlaith Gallaghar recently took over command of L.E. Emer, according to a recent series of articles in the Evening Echo. Good to see that Roberta is no longer the "one and only".

                          However she will have a busy time Keeping Emer going. One of the engineering officers is also female(since when have they had 2?)

                            12 years on, and i read today that Roberta has been promoted Commander, becoming the first female in the Irish Naval Service to wear scrambled egg on the peak of her cap.

                            Delighted for the Service, and the individual in question.

                              I'm sure Ma'am will be just delighted that the examiner used a photo of her when she was newly commissioned.
                              Female senior officers cap looks well. Better photo than one examiner used).


                              I'm just still in shock that she joined in 1995. Was it really that long ago?
                              Am I old now?
