Irish Shipping Ltd – A Fleet History

A new book tracing every ship in the Irish Shipping Ltd. fleet from its humble beginnings in 1941 to its sad demise in 1984 is due for publication in the autumn/winter of 2013. The authors, Brian Cleare, Leo Coy and brothers Brian and John Boyce have done many years of research and gathered together over four hundred photographs covering every ship in the fleet. Many of the photographs have never been published before. This fine hardback publication, with more than 500 pages will be a superb source of reference for many years to come. After an initial launch in County Wexford, the authors will visit the ports of Cork, Dublin and Waterford to further promote the book. As is usual with such a publication initial production costs are high. We are offering one hundred people the opportunity to become “investors” in the project. For €100, each “investor” will receive a special, limited edition of the book. Their name will appear in ALL of the 1000 + books printed. Each book will be signed by the authors and will have a special hand drawn sketch of an Irish Shipping Ltd. vessel signed by the artist. In addition, each of these 100 books will have a special dust jacket and will be numbered 1 – 100. If you would like to register your interest please contact:- John Boyce 0863934251 Brian Cleare 0861075057, Leo Coy 0863103417 Please note that the last date for registration is Sat 21st September.
