Ambas Canada Foynes 06.JPG
His Excellency, Ambassador Loyola Hearn made an official visit to Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum. The Ambassador was delighted to learn of the historic ties between Newfoundland and Foynes as he himself comes from Newfoundland.
The Museum made a presentation to him of a painting by Vincent Killowry of the Yankee Clipper Flying Boat taking off at Foynes..
The Ambassador is hoping to strengthen ties between Foynes and Newfoundland particularly in 2014 when we will celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the first commercial passenger flights across the North Atlantic.
