A derelict, rusting "puffer" boat tied up in Letterfrack, Co. Galway. The Pibroch was built at Bowling, Scotland, in 1957 as a diesel engined boat for the Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd, and since 2002 has been lying at Letterfrack in desperate need of restoration. Puffers were used to move cargos between small island and coastal communities. They were made famous in the BBC tv series Para Handy.
