Each year, a number of students from the Life Centre are given the opportunity to head out to sea with Sail Training Ireland. This year Ryan McAuliffe and Raffaello Facini were lucky enough to hop aboard the tall ship and set sail from Dublin. The boys sailed from Dublin to Belfast, Liverpool, Isle of Man, Cork, and back to Dublin.
Director of the Cork Life Centre, Don O’Leary, explained that the trips are paid for by bursary.
“We are cooking and cleaning as well as dropping the sails and staying up on watch.”
