Passed this proud yet sad wreck of what I believe was the last working steamship in Ireland: the steam dredger Port Láirge (Or as per the bow “Portlairge”, meaning “Waterford” as Gaeilge) in Saltmills, Wexford on my run tonight.

She now has some funky deep-sea bow art through.  Can any maritime-minded reader throw any light on the artwork and when it appeared and via whom? Or indeed on this majestic old wreck itself? There’s something of the Craggy Island about it…

    On a slightly related note, the Waterford Walls street art festival is on next weekend throughout the city. ADW might well be taking part.
