MV The Lady Patricia and MV Miranda Guinness were both scrapped in 1993

Old Dublin Town tweetz:

The Guinness ships “Miranda Guinness” & “The Lady Patricia” once berthed on Sir John Rogersons Quay [Dublin 2] They sailed between Dublin and Runcorn {Cheshire, England] via the Manchester Ship Canal…

MV Miranda?

MV Patricia?

    Used to love spotting these on Sunday trips around the docks and Pigeon House heading out to the bull wall for a stroll with my dad. Nice to see the unapologetic industrial design of the gasometer there. Remember there were plans to turn it into a huge pint of Guinness? Also, I recall several visits for lunch and lemonade to the MV Arran which was berthed across the river from the Guinness boats. Owned by Eamonn Andrews, I think.

    Memories. Who remembers the smell of gas and them old coal cranes by what is now GC Dock?
