Yes this is the ship you see at the very beginning of Father Ted, The Plassy, shipwrecked on Craggy Island (Inisheer or Inis Oirr, Aran Islands) since 1960. Apparently the crew got a little bit drunk, didn't see the lighthouse lights and got marooned on Inis Oirr. Sadly the last remaining crew member died in 2009, he would have been in 70's I guess.
The sky was awful so I added another one (taken in Newcastle, County Down). I rarely resort to this type of drastic manipulation but the original sky was simply appalling. I'm quite pleased with this result, but does it look real and believable?
The ship can actually be seen on Google Maps!
All comments, good, bad or indifferent very welcome indeed. Votes and awards (yeah right) just as welcome!
Have a great weekend.
