Thirteen year old Fisherman home after seven weeks of tuna fishing with his dad

After much pleading, Liam Deasy’s mother, Monica said she and his father, Niall, agreed to allow him to travel from Killybegs to Union Hall on board the F/V Ocean Pioneer. ‘We thought he’d be happy with that but he talked us ‘round,’ said Monica. Liam joined his dad, his cousins, and a reliable crew, when they went tuna fishing on June 28th. ‘He was only meant to go for two weeks. I was supposed to collect him when they made their first landing, but he enjoyed it so much he didn’t want to come home,’ said Monica. Liam’s grandfather and father are all fishermen, which would account for his abiding interest in all things maritime-related. >click to read< 09:59
