Seascapes - 23 February 2018
We visit the boatyard in Cork where the AK Ilen, the century-old wooden sailing ship is being rebuilt - we hear a piece on the ship from the Penguin News, Gary McMahon gives an update on the project, and Hugh Oram has been looking at the man behind the ship, one of Ireland's most renowned sailors, Conor O'Brien. Fergal speaks to Alex Thomson, one of the world's best sailors and a huge supporter of Ireland; and we have an item on the Write By The Sea festival in Kilmore Quay.
