Lecture: "Ireland, How Stands Our Island Nation?

#Lecture - The Dublin Bay Old Gaffers Association's (DBOGA) next lecture "Ireland, How Stand Our Island nation? is to be presented by Tom MacSweeney on Tuesday November 18th at the Poolbeg Yacht Boat Club & Marina, Dublin.

The talk which forms part of the winter lecture programme, starts at 8 pm but the organisers are encouraging those wishing to attend to assemble at 7.15 pm for a socialable drink in advance.

All are welcome to the Poolbeg clubhouse which overlooks the marina and faces the entrance to Alexandra Basin. From here all sorts of shipping activities of the commercial port can be viewed in closer detail.

To reach the clubhouse if travelling from the southside along the Merrion Road take the connecting Sean Moore Road that leads onto the South Bank at Pigeon House Road, Ringsend. Or if travelling from the northside cross the Liffey via the East-Link Toll Bridge.

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.
