Rank #5: Richie Saunders

Podcast cover

Remembering and Restoring the Dublin Ferry No.11: Dubliner Richie Saunders visited many parts of the world when he worked on Irish Shipping. Later he worked on the pilot boats at Dublin Port. Upon retiring he spotted one of the old Dublin Ferries lying up and rusting away. It was a boat he once skippered with pride. Over four years he undertook the restoration of Dublin Ferry No11. In the programme he recalls how it was once located at the site of the now East Link Bridge and how it used to ferry scores of men every morning from Ringsend to the other side of the Liffey in search of work on Dublin's docks. Since 'retiring', Richie is now busier than ever with the Ferry and the various projects associated with his beloved St Patrick's Rowing Club.

We also hear from Stephen Wynn, Dún Laoghaire's RNLI Operations Manager about the greatest loss of life to a lifeboat crew which occurred on Christmas Eve back in 1895 when 15 brave lifeboat men perished in stormy seas as they attempted to rescue the crew from a stricken vessel, just off Dún Laoghaire.
