Glendalough arriving at Rotterdam in 1970. A 1953 Gray built tramp built as Irish Elm then becoming
63 ARDROSSMORE - 68 MEADOW COURT - 70 GLENDALOUGH

broken up in San Juan de Nieva 18.3.72 having been towed there from Bantry Bay where she had been laid up for 3 months. She looks fine in the picture, but to judge from comments on the "Nolstagic era 60s/70s Hong Kong based trampers" forum thread (see posting 32 for instance) she seems to have been a nightmare to sail on.

Very neat, workmanlike and tidy looking ship. Nice high derricks
for timber cargo, etc and appears to have some tween deck accommodation.

Was not a problem in her Irish Shipping days but because of her part refrigerated tween decks was not not re-engined to diesel, newer faster vessels ordered - Spruce and Poplar - for a beef trade that finally died under US embargoes
