I remember the M/V Fred Everard & Suavity delivering timber to Ireland (north & south) in the 1970s. Main ports I think were Wicklow (South) Warrenpoint & Belfast in North. I think the Fred Everard might be your best bet
Regards & successful hunting

The 'Apricity' & 'Actuality' were both built for F.T. Everard in 1966 specially designed for the timber trade from Norway to Gunness but I am sure they would have been used for the timber trade elsewhere as required. There is a photo in the gallery of the 'Heleen C' ex 'Apricity'
Hope this is of use to you, regards.

I was on the Fred Everard between Sept '75 and Aug '76 and D. Stewart was the captain twice in that time. We were running between Gothenburg - Dublin - Warrenpoint - and Belfast. Anybody got any photos of her?
