#JeanieJetfoil – Jeanie Johnston, the replica 19th barque famine and emigrant museum ship reopened yesterday for guided tours at her dedicated Custom House Quay berth at Dublin City Moorings, writes Jehan Ashmore. A month ago today the Dublin Docklands Development Authority owned barque departed her berth for a night-time tow that led eventually to entering a dry-dock downriver for essential maintenance. Now that the spruced-up replica of the original built in Canada in 1847 has returned, visitors can hear the…

In recent days the barque has been undergoing finishing touches while at a temporary lay-by berth close to the…

Fresh From Overhaul Jeanie Johnston Almost Home to Resume Museum Ship Role

#JeanieJohnston - Jeanie Johnston departed Dublin Graving Docks today following the replica 19th barque's most extensive maintenance work since her purchase by the DDDA more than a decade ago, writes Jehan Ashmore. She is scheduled to resume her famine emigrant museum ship role with tours starting this Saturday (1 November). Among the work carried out by the dockyard which faces closure as previously reported, was cleaning of her hull, removal of debris notably along the waterline and timber replaced where…
#WeatherBound – Following yesterday's 30th anniversary of the East-Link Toll Lift Bridge as previously reported, the UK flagged STV Stavros S. Niarchos and OPV L.E. Aisling (P23) both made transits through the Liffey road crossing this morning, writes Jehan Ashmore. The departing vessels had moored at neighbouring berths along Sir John Rogersons Quay, from where the Naval Service 'Emer' class OPV firstly vacated having arrived in Dublin Port the previous day. Within the hour so did the sale-listed STV Stavros…
#TallshipImposter –At first glance anyone along the Liffey this afternoon could be forgiven to conclude Jeanie Johnston was returning from dry-dock to her dedicated northside Liffey berth, however as a tallship sailed up Dublin's city quays she instead notably berthed at the south quays and dismissed any such theory, writes Jehan Ashmore. The Custom House Quay berth is where Jeanie Johnston is normally stationed as a static museum ship however her dry-docking period has been extended. Originally, the replica barque…
#JeanieJohnston - Jeanie Johnston which is undergoing maintenance at Dublin Graving Docks Ltd was joined this week by Dutch flagged Arklow Rambler at the ship-repair facility that faces closure by Dublin Port Company over plans to redevelop Alexandra Basin, writes Jehan Ashmore. As previously reported, Dublin Graving Docks which employs around 26 people at a site within the port estate area of Alexandra Basin is where DPC propose a €200m project to accommodate much bigger cruise ships at a dedicated…
