« BackCrew of Marita Ann speak publicly for first time about the ill-fated trawler

© Sinn FeinA number of Kerry men involved in the Marita Ann gun running operation more than 30 years ago, have spoken publicly for the first time about what happened on the night.
The trawler was intercepted off the Kerry coast in September of 1984 by the naval service, with seven tonnes of arms on board for use by the IRA.
Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris has spoken about his part in the operation, which led to his being sentenced to ten years in prison.
However, the other crew members have remained silent until now.
Mike Browne, Gavin Mortimer and Johnny McCarthy  agreed to speak to Fenit native Jim McCarthy, in a new film about the history of the village.
The documentary is due to be shown for the first time at Siamsa Tire on Easter Saturday night.
Crewman Mike Browne recalls how one of the arresting naval officers fell into the water while boarding the Marita Ann.
