A tall ship expected to take part in a festival in Dublin Port, beginning next Thursday, has made an unexpected arrival at Dún Laoghaire Harbour this afternoon.

The ship, Pogoria, had to leave the Bay of Biscay early because of bad weather.

Pogoria is one of more than 40 tall ships due to take part in the Tall Ships Races 2012 next week.
