Shackleton at Work and Rest

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2011

Dublin Port Company's tug SHACKLETON (completed in 2010 by Astilleros Zamakona shipyard in Bilboa, Spain) seen heading down the fairway to rendezvous with BALMORAL. She is seen later in the day in company with her fleet mates near East Link Bridge berthed ahead of sister vessel BEAUFORT. BEAUFORT and SHACKLETON are named after two famous Irish explorers Ernetst Shackleton from County Kildare and Sir Francis Beaufort from Navan who devised the sale of wind force measurement.
