Boat's Irish name Banríon Uladh becomes Queen of Ulster

A fisheries protection vessel had its Irish name replaced with its English translation because the executive department which owns it has a "single language policy".

Banríon Uladh has been renamed Queen of Ulster and patrols as far south as Anglesey and as far north as Lough Foyle.

Its crew can board and search fishing boats to ensure the fishermen are complying with rules and regulations on quotas.
