Dundalk has a long history of sea-faring, with ships leaving her port for destinations around the world.
In the past emigrants left here in search of better lives - nowadays the ships coming and going carry a variety
of cargoes from timber to grain.
Life at sea was, and still is, tough. Lives were lost and ships sank.
This sculpture at Soldiers' Point at the edge of Dundalk Bay is by Irish scuplor Ann Meldon Hugh. It's called 'Sea God Manannan and Voyages' and the figures face out to sea.
I'm looking forward to Pbase coming back on-line as I'm starting to miss it.
