If she arrives in Dublin on Friday afternoon or after, I will be there to take some photos

Jury’s still out !
She could still take the Kiel Canal.
Looks like an extra day sea trials then head for Cherbourg ?
Considering her present position there would be nothing to gain by going via the Kiel Canal , and if there are a few kinks to iron out the last place to take her would be via the canal . I'm sure the canal operators would be a bit concerned .

Looks like she is bunkering at sea off the Danish coast , tanker close to her port side at the moment .

Yes. Does anyone know how long the bunkering process takes. Seems like she's been there for quite a while now.

She'll be in Dublin on the morning of the 20th if all goes to plan.  Initially on 49 then moving to 18.

Trials in Holyhead.  That Pembroke was skipped perhaps suggests they don't have any current plans to use her as cover for Inishmore?
