Irish Naval Service LE Samuel Beckett calls at Valletta Port

The Irish Naval Service Samuel Beckett-class offshore-patrol vessel LE Samuel Beckett (P 61) has sailed into Valletta Port (the Grand Harbour) this morning on a courtesy visit.

The Irish OPV is currently deployed in the Mediterranean and assigned to E.U. Naval Force Mediterranean (Operation Sofia).

LE Samuel Beckett is presently berthing alongside at Pinto-4 wharf and she's expected to sail from Malta after a short stay to take-up bunkers and stores. (1-Oct-2016)
