Episode 6 – June 2022 – Calling Me Home

On this month’s edition of the  MARITIME IRELAND RADIO SHOW  there is a wide variety of maritime views, opinions and stories, highlighting the importance of Ireland’s marine sector.  From the port of Arklow, a former seafarer tells why he and his brother have composed a ballad about the worst fishing tragedy the famous Wicklow Port experienced. And we’ll play the ballad, “Calling Me Home.” Roddy Cooke, who is now on the Aran Islands ferry from Rossaveal will tell how those who worked for the Bell Lines Shipping Company operating out of Waterford gathered to remember that company and its ships. People who have put the names of deceased relatives on the new lifeboat at Clifden, Co.Galway, will describe their emotion when it arrived and they saw the names on its hull. We’ll go to “small family oriented sailing club run by volunteers with a love for sailing,” who feel the people of Ireland are ready to hear more about the sport of sailing and we hear about the “All Irelands” on the offshore islands.
