The Plassy - Michael Prior Photography

The Plassy


The Plassy - a steam trawler launched in late 1940 and shipwrecked on Inisheer, the smallest of the Aran Islands, on March 8th 1960 when carrying a cargo of whiskey, stained glass and wool. All the crew members were fortunately rescued by the islanders. The Plassy is renowned for being shown in the opening sequence of the cult comedy T.V. series, Father Ted.

This image is printed by Michael on a satin art paper as standard using archival inks. This gives a warm, rich, artist quality product which when properly cared for should last for over 100 years. The watermark/logo will not be included on your purchased print.

All prints are sold unframed and un-mounted. Prints are cut to include a white border which allows them to be inserted into a wide variety of mounts and frames.

Each purchase is carefully packaged and sent via An Post registered post.

Contact Michael directly to request a custom size of this image, a mounted option or even to commission your own bespoke photograph of this or a similar location.
