It seems the hunt is still on for the pranksters who left Godman
staff stranded on their boat in Kinsale a couple of weeks ago.
The incident, and details vary depending on who you listen to, happened
on the Friday night of the four-day International Advertising
Staff from Godman had hired a yacht instead of opting for the more
sensible option of a harbour-side B&B.
During the night, the mooring ropes were untied by someone, either
deliberately or accidentally. Not wishing to start any rumours about who
has it in for Godman’s managing director, Jo Godman, we’d like to point
out that she wasn’t actually attending the festival.
Despite gossip that the vessel drifted into the middle of the harbour,
local police were called and a hunt mounted for the culprits, the
official story is that the boat only drifted a few feet from the harbour
before one of the quick-thinking crew jumped land-side and
Of course, we agree that, if the demooring was deliberate, it was a
reckless act, and we would be interested in any clues as to who did it.
