Former Port of Cork tender CILL AIRNE at Custom House Quay on Sunday October 24, 2004. She still carries the estate agent's for sale board on her stern. She was sold at auction a few weeks earlier to local businessmen who plan to turn her into a floating pub / restaurant in time for Cork's year as European City of Culture 2005. Given that the new year is less than two months away one would think they need to get on with things. So far it doesn't appear externally that any work has been done.
Also of interest is the note on the estate agent's board that a similar vessel is wanted.
