Meet Peter Doherty, 1st Engineer “MFV Brendelen”

“It’s a great industry to get involved in” – Peter Doherty, 1st Engineer “MFV Brendelen”

I started my marine engineering career in BIM NFC Greencastle in September 2005, completing my academic year in July 2006. Following my apprenticeship onboard the “MFV Brendelen”, I worked my way up to Class 1 Engineer.

It’s a great industry for anyone to get involved in and the National Fisheries College in Greencastle provides an invaluable service and multiple courses for the seafood sector in Ireland. I’m proud to say that today I’m still on board “MFV Brendelen” in the role of 1st Engineer.
