THE BELFAST BUOYS

THE BELFAST BUOYS AT THEIR ORIGINAL LOCATION - PHOTOGRAPHED MAY 2015

If you are American you may not know that in Ireland and Britain "Buoy" is pronounced the same as "Boy".

When I visited in March 2019 I could not find these Buoys and it was only this month [November 2020] that I discovered that they had been relocated.

Last year the Belfast Buoys were relocated to the Titanic Quarter in Belfast.

They buoys were originally presented to Belfast City Council by the Commissioners of Irish Lights in 1983 and and were located in the Cathedral Gardens, which became affectionately known as ‘Buoy Park’.

Regeneration of the area around the Ulster University and the development of Titanic Quarter prompted plans for the buoys to find a new home near Abercorn Basin. In January 2019, the buoys were transported to the Irish Lights Headquarters in Dun Laoghaire [Dublin] for restoration. They returned to Belfast took up their new residence in Abercorn Basin just in time for Tall Ships arrived for the Belfast Titanic Maritime Festival.

I USE THIS AND IT IS ALREADY FULL

One of the biggest ongoing problems that I have is storage and the problems gets worse by the year. 4 Years ago I purchased two LaCie 8TB thunder bolt drives and eighteen months later I purchased a 12TB drive and then in August of 2019 I needed a 20TB unit and it is already full. I do have an aggressive backup policy which does require a lot of storage so i suppose that I should not be surprised. I should mention that I use Amazon Photos and currently am using 12TB of online storage.


I REALLY DO NEED A SOLUTION
