The Irish Naval Association had their annual commemoration and wreath laying ceremony yesterday Sunday the 26/01/2020 in Drogheda in Honour of Leading Seaman (L/S) Michael Quinn DSM who lost his life while going to the assistance of a Spanish fishing vessel in Bantry Bay exactly thirty years ago this month. Michael came from Drogheda and a number of years ago a stone Plaque was unveiled by the President of Ireland Michael D Higgins in Michael's Honour and we have been attending every year since. The Dublin Branch of the (INA) is named after Michael. We had a very large turnout possibly the biggest since the unveiling made up of members of the INA ,ONE Slane / Navan / Drogheda and the Erskine Childers Branch of the ONE.
|We had a surprise attendance of a Naval Ensign from the Ecuador Navy who is in Ireland to learn English and he was invited to say a few words which he did very well knowing the story of Michael Quinn|
