The NRP Comandante João Belo (F480) in Cork

NRP Comandante João Belo (F480)

Back in 2005 many naval ships visited Cork Harbour and one of them was the NRP Comandante João Belo. According to this Wikipedia page it was sold to Uruguay but in 2005 it flew the colours of the Portuguese Navy.

You can find out more about this particular ship here but you’ll have to translate it to English if your Portuguese isn’t up to scratch.

In the background is the “Port of Cork” sign and the buildings of the now demolished Cork Bonded Warehouse.
