  11. I was having a bit of a clear out in the spare room yesterday and I found an old photo album belonging to an aunt of my wifes. She had a holiday home on the cliffs in Crosshaven that had a great view of Cork harbour. The small album had her pics of the Tall Ships departing Cork harbour on Saturday 20th July 1991. Amongst them was this one of Bretagne departing.

  15. Reminds me of a story an ex Irish Navy I worked with told me years ago. He was from Dublin and I remember him telling me that when he was being kitted out at the naval base in Haulbowline, Cobh he was asked what size rubber dollies (local Cork name for trainers) he wanted? He was simultaneously shocked and overjoyed as he thought they were referring to another type of "rubbers" 😁
