Admiral William Brown hailed from Foxford and today’s (yesterday) trip was the largest to take place by officers from the Navy he led.
The visiting party was joined by members of the Irish Naval Service for the ceremonies.
The event also attracted many Argentinians living in Ireland, keen to meet up with their compatriots.
The Naval officers attended a memorial mass in the local church before continuing a parade through the town.
As Afloat previously reported the ARA Libertad is the sail training vessel of the Argentinian Navy which visited Dublin Port at the weekend. The five-day visit ends tomorrow afternoon.
