This wonderful Old two mast sailing ship sailed into Wicklow harbour this morning and is after coming all the way from Hamburg. It is a ship from a museum and this time it has a crew of 8 men.
One of which is a wandering carpenter (see photo)
who is looking for any work that might be going and also a place to stay for the night if possible .He is wearing the distinctive clothing of a wandering trainee tradesman. He told me he is not allowed to carry a mobile phone and is also expected to travel around by hitchhiking and so he hitched a ride on this ship. The ship sails for Scotland tomorrow morning and he is expecting to find some work there ! Well the best of luck to him and the merry crew of this great ship!
