RMS TITANIC y RMS OLYMPIC
Para poder diferenciar a los dos hermanos, el Olympic fue construido con su casco pintado de blanco, mientras que el Titanic fue construido con el casco pintado de negro.21 Los trabajos de construcción de su estructura progresaron a un buen ritmo y fueron completados a principios de 1911. Su casco estaba formado por aproximadamente dos mil placas de acero que medían tres metros de largo por dos metros de ancho, con un grosor de entre 2,5 y 3,8 centímetros. Esas placas se mantenían unidas por más de tres millones de remaches.
RMS TITANIC and RMS OLYMPIC
In order to differentiate the two brothers, the Olympic was built with its helmet painted white, while the Titanic was built with the helmet painted black.21 The construction work of its structure progressed at a good pace and was completed at early 1911. His helmet was formed by approximately two thousand steel plates that measured three meters long by two meters wide, with a thickness of between 2.5 and 3.8 centimeters. Those plates were held together by more than three million rivets.
Good morning from Saint Canice’s Cathedral! Also known as Kilkenny Cathedral, the building dates from the 13th century. It stands on the site of a Celtic Christian monastery said to have been founded in the 6th century by Saint Canice as a daughter house to Aghaboe Abbey. ⛪ 🇮🇪 📷: @rano_49
Dunquin Pier ist a beautiful spot to visit 🤩 and the way to Blasket Islands 🏞️
Dunquin meaning "Caon's stronghold", is a Gaeltacht village in west County Kerry 😍 Dunquin lies at the most westerly tip of the Dingle Peninsula, overlooking the Blasket Islands and really worth a visit. The most western point of Ireland is closeby 😀
There is dramatic cliff scenery, with a view of the Blasket Islands, where Peig Sayers lived.🗺️ A museum in the village tells the story of the Blaskets and the lives of the people who lived there including the well-known writers of the island, which includes Sayers, Tomás Ó Criomhthain, and Muiris Ó Súilleabháin. 🏛️ In 1588, when the Spanish Armada returned via Irelandmany ships sought shelter in the Blasket Sound — the area between Dún Chaoin and the Islands — and some were wrecked there.🗻 A memorial stands on the cliffs overlooking the site. Dunquin is located on the Dingle Way, which is a 179km circular walking trail which takes in much of the Dingle peninsula⭐⭐
