The Tall Ships of Belfast

Date: 02/07/2015 13:00
Although perhaps most famous for the construction of liners, Belfast shipyards produced a large number of sailing vessels and, in the early days of Harland & Wolff  and Workman Clark, they were an important part of their output.

John Lynch spent his career in the civil service before undertaking postgraduate work at Queen's University, Belfast. He took a PhD in Economic and Social History before joining the School of History and Anthropology. Now a freelance writer and historian, he has a number of books and articles under his belt including work on Belfast shipbuilders and Harland and Wolff. He lives in Belfast.
