Episode 10 – Radio Pirates, Rivers and Sailing

On this edition … 76,000 rivers in Ireland have barriers that affect how they flow, have an  impact on fisheries and could affect water supplies. Fisheries Ireland marine scientists outline how they are dealing with the situation.

The days of the maritime radio ‘pirates’ are recalled

Pictured is the mv.Mi Amigo and you can hear her last transmission as she sank on this edition of the programme. The programme also questions the Government’s attitude towards watersports. And there is a new poem about the true story of an incident aboard a fishing trawler.
