LÉ Niamh - Irish Navy

LÉ Niamh - Irish Navy

2002 - present
The Naval Service continued its development in 2002 with a landmark deployment to the Far East. LE Niamh, the newest of the Naval Service patrol ships, conducted a four month voyage which included the first ever visit by an Irish naval ship to Hong Kong, Incheon, Shanghai, Tokyo and Penang with a refueling stop in Cochin, India . Enroute the LE Niamh conducted a resupply for the Irish troops serving with the UN in Eritrea.

Several high profile incidents occurred during this period ensuring that the Naval Service was never far from the national, and sometimes the international headlines. These included LE Aoife’s part in the rescue operation for HMCS Chicoutimi, a Canadian Navy submarine which suffered a fire off the coast of Donegal in October 2004. Numerous other Search, Rescue and Diving Operations punctuated this period, in addition to the Naval Service’s increasing fishery protection output and a general increase in patrol days per ship. This increase in output was a result of internal restructuring measures and service-level agreements with external agencies and stakeholders, ensuring that the Naval Service continued to deliver maritime military services with built-in efficiency, value and flexibility.

The LE Niamh was again deployed in this period when, in October 2003 She was sent on a mission to the West Coast of Africa, in support of the Army’s reconnaissance prior to the deployment of Irish troops in Liberia with the UN. LE Niamh’s taskings included the transport and delivery of vehicles, equipment and personnel to Monrovia’s war-torn port, and the logistic, medical and communications support of the recce party as they explored the coastal areas. The ship acted as a secure, armed base for the recce party and was also poised to conduct an extraction of personnel should the situation deteriorate unexpectedly. For good measure, LE Niamh conducted a charting survey of the port while there, using the navigational skills and training of her personnel to note the position of wrecks, damage to piers and other navigational hazards for future reference. LE Niamh deployed to Liberia within seven days of having been off the Mayo coast on a routine patrol. It is a very good example of the military capability and operational flexibility that Naval Service units bring to any situation.

Throughout 2002 to the present developments ashore continued apace with the construction of the National Maritime College of Ireland, a partnership between the Department of Defence, the Naval Service, the Department of Education and the Cork Institute of Technology. This state of the art facility opened for its first students in September 2004. It represents an enormous advance in the training environment for Naval Service personnel. Modern classrooms, equipment and training facilities mean improvements have been made in seamanship, engineering, sea-survival and fire fighting training. Navigation and engineering training in particular are making use of high tech simulator facilities. The Naval Service continues to run its military training in the Naval College installations on the Naval Base but the bulk of the maritime training is now conducted in the NMCI. Graduates of Naval Service courses are now routinely achieving certification to national and international maritime standards as the Naval Service goes from strength to strength in this new era.

Equipment: Full wetsuit with 18lbs. Had my dive knife, which I didn't use, and my large torch, which was extremely useful.

In this dive we visited the intentionally sunken (though sunk with a lot more drama than planned) USS Spiegel Grove. It's an enormous (510 ft in length) ship that was sunk as an artificial reef. It was quite an amazing dive. Unfortunately, my weight belt was just a little to big and my dive knife didn't allow me to cinch it up enough. This made me waste a lot of my air as I struggled with my weight belt constantly. It fit fine on the surface, but the wetsuit compression at depth caused it to start slipping right off my hips. For future reference, I should make sure I have ample room to tighten the weightbelt by at least 3-4 more inches before I jump in the water. That's what us hipless fat guys have to do when we dive. When I got to my turnaround pressure, I used Dirk's air for a while so we could continue exploring.
