          Is this the first Irish Naval Vessel to head through the Panama Canal?
          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.

            I downloaded the pictures of her going through the Miraflores locks, I will post them tonight, she looked very small in the lock with two huge tankers one behind her and one on her left.

              It is indeed.
              A proud achievement. Hopefully it won't be too long before we see another Irish Naval vessel do the transit, from west to east.

                          The media are only interested when there is scandal. Unfortunately for them, the crew of L.E.Niamh are remarkably well behaved.
