VIDEO: Stunning footage captures 3,000 tonne cargo ship maneuvering in Dundalk port

Excellent footage by local man David Caldwell captures the moment the 3,269 tonne Wilson Dover cargo ship turns around at Dundalk port. 

The ship - which is nearly the length of a soccer pitch - was built in 1993 and measures 87 metres long. The footage shows a tug boat helping it in its maneuvering. 

As this story goes to print the vessel is off the coast of Scotland, near the Isle of Skye.
