Losing the head

Just for a change, I’ve put up a new header photo showing a Shannon 1. The photo was taken from Shannon Airport; you can see Ringmoylan Quay on the far side of the river and the beacon on the right is (I think) on the Horse Rock.

If you don’t like hanging around airports, Shannon offers you a choice: you can go and look at the estuary instead, which is much more interesting.

Shannon 1, the successor to Curraghgour II, is a Damen MultiCat.
