East Belfast men – AGAIN!

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

East Belfast Anglers know not when to stop – another great day at the Flatfish – 14 Turbot, 5 Brill, 2 Plaice, 23 Dabs. How can they be matched?

There were rumours that the Belmullet men were going to take them on head to head, but the smart money is on the Belmullet men bottling it!

Photos say it all!

HMS Audacious Tampion Emblem recovered. Outstanding artefact reflecting the tradition of this proud Dreadnought Battleship. The Emblem is reckoned to be from one of the gun tampions, but due to its size (8 inch diameter) not certain.

Words from Virgil’s, The Aeneid, meaning Bold in Strength, or Strength in Bold Daring. In The Aeneid, Acentes, son of Troy, gives 2 oxen to each ship to hold a feast and thereafter proposes to the Trojans to race their ships and other martial competitions, the winner to expect prizes of victory.

Another really nice dive on the Empire Heritage in 66m – 25 miles north of Mevagh boatyard. Nice porthole for Eoin. Shot at boilers and lots of Sherman tanks. Vis still 20 metres.
