when they started using the fast ferries out of Dublin,they had to reduce speed leaving the Port as the wake was causing trouble to small boats and local beaches. Those ferries are quite powerful and generate a high,fast wake as they accelerate.
There's a bloke who owns models of Spitfire and Hurricane and tours the country showing them at fairs, country shows etc. You pay for your photo in front of it etc. If I remember right, he was on a TV show that followed him around a bit. The above might be that guy.
