Ghost Ship In Ballycotton Co Cork
Abandoned by its crew, the cargo vessel made a lonely odyssey across the Atlantic, a ghost ship seemingly destined never to make port.The 77-metre MV Alta drifted for over a year, skirting the Americas, Africa and Europe, rusting and derelict yet resolutely afloat.
Its voyage came to an end during Storm Dennis on Sunday the 15th of February when it ran aground near Ballycotton, a fishing village in County Cork, overlooking the Celtic Sea. The Alta wedged itself on to rocks. This is a 10 minute photograph taken in the start of March 2020
