Great branley 2007-06-15 4:22

Hi Paul,

I didn't know you boys had a Navy? It's a fine looking vessel though I'd like to have seen more of the surroundings, it's a bit too tight in the frame for me but that's only a personal view. The mainly grey colouring of the ship and the buildings is broken up by the occasional flashes of colour from the bunting, it has good sharpness and overall it's a fine capte my friend, well seen.

Regards

Stephen

Default To branley: Navy

Stephen,

Ireland has a very proud naval service. Almost all of our naval ships were designed and built in Ireland. They were specifically designed for coastal and fisheries protection. Some of the designs and ships have been exported to countries like Norway and Sweden.

By the tone of your reply Paul I would say I've upset you and for that I apologise and can assure you hat no offence was intended, it was only supposed to be a bit of fun.

Stephen,

No, not at all. :-)

We do have a small navy, but a proud one.

Many don't realise that we are still one of the few naval services that design and build their own vessels.

I'm pleased I haven't upset you mate, I wouldn't do that for anything, let's just say my humour is typical of someone who spent 16 years in the RN! I also have to express my ignorance in not knowing that Ireland has a strong naval and ship buiding tradition....sorry. Have a good Sunday Paul and take care.

Stephen
