  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.
  12. She lasted a little longer in Cork than Venus or City of Cork but not much longer 😁 Fastnet Lines Julia First arrival in Cork from Swansea Alongside at Ringaskiddy photographed from Pont Aven
  13. Couple of the Val at Cork 30th May 1998 with QE2 at the deep water berth Outward bound passing Roches Point Lighthouse in August 1999
  14. Couple of 1 season wonders at Cork. From 1999 Venus (ex Dana Hafnia) that operated a short lived Cork to St Malo service for Swansea Cork Ferries. And from 2001 City of Cork (ex St Patrick II and Aurella) operated on the Cork Swansea route but was replaced in 2002 by the return of Superferry,
  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" 😁
  16. Few of my pics of Stena Vinga at Rosslare Arriving in Rosslare for first time on Monday morning. Vinga, Horizon and Europe on Monday evening
  17. Some pics from a visit to Bergen in June 2005 Full album here https://flic.kr/s/aHsmQEvthT

  19. A few of the local ferry traffic that evening
  20. On Monday 3rd July 2006 we sailed on Bretagne from Portsmouth to St Malo. Here's a few pics taken from Bretagne of the various ferries that evening.
  21. According to the latest timetable on Irish site Kerrys last sailing from Rosslare to Bilbao is on Friday 30th October with Connemara taking over the route. Her first sailing ex Rosslare is on Wednesday 10th November at 10.15
  22. There's no doubt that masks have a place in fighting this pandemic. But what concerns me is that some people see wearing them as a replacement for social distancing. They act as if a mask is some sort of magic bullet that negates the need for other measures. 🙄
  23. Agreed if we were retired we,d have gone without hesitation and have had no bother doing the quarantine. As it stand we're both working part time and staying home for 14 days after 2 weeks in France isnt an option! So the June 2020 trip that went back to September 2020 has now moved to August 2021!
  24. Marco Polo is a regular visitor to Cork and I love photographing her. Hopefully she manages to survive the current crisis and will sail again, Couple of pics of her arriving and departing on 27th August 2015
