The Jeanie Johnston Chronicle

Jeanie lies on her barge at Blennerville,Co. Kerry,
26th April, 2000

Jeanie Johnston
    The Jeanie Johnston is now staying in Blennerville until early May to be rigged, then moved to Fenit in time for May 7th when President McAleese will attend a naming ceremony.

    The Jeanie's masts, made of Irish douglas fir, have been moved back from Fenit and work has begun fitting them by their Danish manufacturers. Below this log is the first published picture of the Jeanie with her initial mast and rigging in place.

    The journey to Fenit is due to take place between May 3rd and 5th, when the tides are at their highest just after the new moon. The journey has to follow the deep channel in Tralee Bay and should take about 4 hours.

Jeanie Johnston rests on her barge having had her first mast and rigging fitted. The first mast and rigging, with the crane which lifted the mast into place.
