Launching at M50 bridge

Launching at M50 bridge

Anyone know anything about a barge (Flagflier) being craned into the Royal close to the M50 early this morning. All seemed to be happening on a rather precarious looking sloping site. Nice looking boat, possibly a new build, but I was a bit far away from it.

Saw it from train on my way to Dublin, thought it seemed an odd place for a lift-in. Didn't look that new.

It may not be "The" launching but when did this one take place?

Thanks

I think that's the "Mardler", definitely not the barge I saw from the train. It was a widebeam.

Its just that the "Mardler" is missing from its mooring in Ballyleague, and I know that the owners were looking to get it as far as Dublin last year but couldn't because of water levels on the Royal Canal.
