Official launch of RV Celtic Mist

7th Aug 2012

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group invite you to the official launch of Ireland’s new whale and dolphin research vessel, Celtic Mist. Celtic Mist was donated to the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group by the Haughey family last year.  Following an extensive refit in Kilrush Boatyard, Co Clare RV Celtic Mist now has eight berths, new toilets with holding tank and new rigging. It will have a passenger licence for 12 persons and four crew.  
 
The official launch will take place on Sunday 12 August at Kilrush Creek Marina, Co Clare at 2pm.  There will be plenty of activities for the kids including a fun fair, face-painting, music, slideshow and a short student film on the refit and guided tours of the new vessel. We hope you will be able to join us for this big maritime day in West Clare.
