LIMERICK SHIP’S CREW RETURNED HOME AFTER DETENTION IN HAMBURG

One of the vessels associated with the Limerick Steamship Company, the “Ammer Sinain,” which had been detained in Hamburg following the outbreak of war, has finally been sent back to Limerick. Reports indicate that the crew members of the ship were subjected to a prolonged period of uncertainty and hardship during their time in detention.

The crew, numbering nine individuals, were released and repatriated, arriving in Limerick visibly exhausted and worn. Among them was a notable presence of men of military age, who were promptly discharged to return to their families. However, it is regrettable to note that the ordeal continues for some, as several crew members remain detained in Limburg.

The circumstances surrounding the detention and subsequent release of the “Ammer Sinain” and its crew highlight the complexities faced by seafarers during times of international conflict. Despite the challenges encountered, the safe return of the vessel and part of its crew to Limerick signifies a moment of relief for the company and the local community.

Efforts are likely underway to secure the release of the remaining crew members, ensuring their safe return home and bringing closure to this chapter of uncertainty for the Limerick Steamship Company and its employees.
