John Todd And The Mighty Tir Na Nog

John Todd lobsters on the Tir Na Nog.  It’s a tiny boat that rolls around like an empty chlorox bottle being tossed around in the sea but John get’s it done aboard the Mighty Tir Na Nog nonetheless.  Everything aboard the Tir na Nog is tiny except for the skipper- John Todd.  I’m not exactly sure how he fits in the pilot house of the boat, being hunched over all day doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun.

The meaning of Tir na nÓg is "Land of Eternal Youth." From an old Irish legend, Tir na nÓg was a mythical island off Ireland’s West Coast where its inhabitants remained forever young.

    Gee Joey, You’re right. He does look taller then the pilot house.
