According to the Irish Examiner, the Susanne II was one of several vessels being followed by camera crews over a number of months for ‘Gafa sna Líonta’, the first episode in the new series of Tabú which starts next Wednesday 8 January at 9.30pm.
‘Gafa sna Líonta’ chronicles the stories of fishermen around Ireland’s coastal and the various challenges facing our coastal communities.
Cameras were not present at the time of the incident, however, in which the trawler’s three crew were airlifted to safety some 100km off the east coast.
Boat owner Ronan Forde explained how he feared for his men’s lives when he learned of their predicament at sea. The Irish Examiner has more on the story HERE.
