Three members of the Irish Naval Association (INA) got a invitation to attend a reception on board the Argentine Navy Sail Ship the Libertad on Sir John Rogersons Quay Dublin on Monday 4/11/2019. The three members who attended were myself as President of the ( INA ) Terry Cummins as National PRO and the Chairman of the Dublin Branch Brian Farrell. The weather was deplorable it had been raining very heavy all day and it would have been very easy to stay at home. We were welcomed on board by the Commanding Officer Captain Juan Carlos Romay and H.E. Ambassador Laura Bernal. There was plenty of food and wine and the entertainment was excellent both from the Argentine Navy Band and dancers dancing the Tango, not to be outdone we had some Irish Dancers and Singers. We had a long conversation with the Chief of Staff Vice Admiral Mark Mellett who outlined a idea he has for us next year. The Captain and Crew had Paraded in Mayo the day before t o Honour the Father of the Argentine Navy Admiral William Brown.

Bryan Gildea.
