New Antarctic For McHugh Family – Youngest members of the family raised the Irish flag on the vessel

Eamon Óg and Gerard Jr raised the flag on Antarctic’s mast, supervised by their grandparents Teresa and Eamon McHugh, who have together been at the head of this family business for 25 years. Eamon McHugh is a well-known figure within the pelagic fishing community, with forty seagoing years behind him as he has worked up from sailing as mate on Paula to running his own pelagic vessel. He will continue to skipper the new Antarctic, the  fifth vessel in the family’s ownership. The Antarctic Fishing Company goes back to 1987 when he acquired the first Antarctic from his brother Kevin McHugh, subsequently replacing it in 1997 with their first newbuild. Today Eamon and Teresa’s sons Eamon J and Gerard are closely involved in the company’s operations, with Eamon J managing the shore side and Gerard sailing as skipper. >Click to read<,,, Read more about Antarctic– 13:39
