This Island Nation – Wednesday 6th August

In this month’s programme we have the story of a Soviet take-over of Cork Port, hear that love is in the air at the country’s lifeboat stations, with the 45th station due to open shortly; we go to Ireland’s longest river, the Shannon,  where a boat made famous by Wolfe Tone is being launched; tour Ballycotton Lighthouse, open to the public for the first time and hear about its association with the Irish ship which made the first crossing of the Atlantic by steam; and we discuss whether a Tall Ship is the best method of sail training.

And, what about this for a photo – a man with a shark by the tail in Cork Harbour?

This story is also told in the monthly angling report on THIS ISLAND NATION.
