On a glorious 1st March and after two years of restrictions Bangor Marina on Belfast Lough held their Pancake Tuesday get together again, welcoming a big crowd to a ‘catch up’.

Marina manager Kevin Baird was delighted to see so many berth holders and friends; “ It was wonderful to catch up over a pancake and a cup of tea. Service with a smile - Vickie, Tommy and Davy served up the pancakes. It was a great success”.

The next Marina event will be held on St Patrick's Day - berth holders will be invited to join the staff for Irish Stew and wheaten bread.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
