IRISBANK

The elegant lines of the 1964 Doxford built IRISBANK. She later had 14 years service for the N Koreans as the KANG DONG

The 1964 Irisbank was not a Doxford vessel. She was a H and W built and left the yard for her first voyage to Galveston on the 09 09 1964. I was the 6th engineer and first trip which lasted 15 months. Master was nwl Kent.and the chief was Dougie Buck. . There was no love lost between these two……………

from John Lilley – thanks.

Correct – She was one of the 11 TAYBANK class that were built at Doxford’s. However, the second batch of 5 vessels including the IRISBANK were all built at Harlands in Belfast.
