Join us to welcome the General R Dudley Blake home
This boat has had an amazing journey through history and is making its way home from Hook Head lighthouse in Wexford back to Blackrock Village where it last made a short visit in 1994. Ownership of the boat has been passed to the Blackrock Tourism and Development Group who are bringing the boat back home to its original resting place from 1909 as part of the Lifeboat Service based in Blackrock which saved 84 lives in total.
The boat will arrive in Main Street, Blackrock, Co. Louth at 3:00pm on Saturday 23rd June 2018.
So come up to welcome this old girl home before it goes into storage in preparation for a programme of resoration and ultimately to be put on display in the village at some future date.
