Belem Tallship


On Wednesday, 22nd August 2012 the majestic Tallship Belem moored at Galway's North Dun Aengus
Quay for a 2 day visit.  The Belem was on route from St Malo, France with 49 trainees onboard.  The Belem is no stranger to Galway, having visited in 2007.
She has had an "interesting history" said Harbour Master Captain Brian Sheridan since her launching in 1896. Trading mostly in the West Indies and
Guyana before being owned by the Duke of Westminster and also by AE Guinness. The Tallship was in beautiful condition and is a welcome sight to
Galway.  The photo was taken by Mike Swan, Coxwain of the Pilot Cutter Loc Lurgain II as the Belem entered Galway Harbour Wednesday evening.
