Interesting story concerning the SS Nomadic, a small tender built in Belfast the year before the Titanic and used to ferry passengers out to the tragic liner. The ship is still afloat, and is up for sale in France. But the City Council cannot afford the cost of buying and restoring and ready for inclusion in a Titanic Musuem.
It also seems reluctant to apply to Northern Ireland Consolidated Loan Fund, run by the NI Audit Office to help NI Departments to meet necessary expenditure. It begs the question of how confident the Council is that the project will do what it says on the tin. Back to the business plan?
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
