No hope for "Joan of Arc"?

The "Joan of Arc" used to be one of the ferries operating between Knightstown on Valentia Island and Renard Point on the mainland near Cahersiveen.
For the last couple years the boat is now resting at the end of Valentia Channel near the Anagar bridge. I visited the boat recently to take some photos and felt sad that the boat is now rotting away. I believe the boat would be a great addition to the local heritage museum in Knighstown. Here is an article about the boat with detailed history.  Joan of Arc article Kerryman
All photos were taken with a Canon 5dmkII and a 50mm lens.

The mountains of South Kerry are covered with a bit of snow. A great reason to go for a drive and take some photos. I took the road from Waterville to Glencar over the Ballaghisheen pass.
From Glencar I drove towards Lough Acoose and back to Blackwater Bridge and Caragh Lake. I left the lake road for Treanmanagh and back to the N70 for my way home.
