In July 1999, Dundalk man Pat Murphy and his late wife Olivia set sail from Carlingford on a nine-year voyage that would bring them around the world. With a background in engineering, business, the Round Ireland and Fastnet races, and pigeon racing, Pat Murphy is a natural raconteur. Most recently he has been heavily involved in the conservation of Erskine and Molly Childers famous gun-running yacht Asgard.
