image for Irish ship Rachel Corrie due to arrive in Gaza

The Irish aid ship, MV Rachel Corrie, is headed for the territorial waters of Gaza, estimated to arrive at 0600 BST (0900 local) today.

On Friday, crew member Jenny Graham said they remained determined to dock in Gaza. Despite this determination, there remains some confusion as the ship was destined for Ghana.

A representative of the International Port of Ghana said that the ship was destined to load 1200 tonnes of Cocoa destined for England.

Our reporter managed to contact the Captain of the Rachel Corrie via ship to shore radio, who conceded that he had spilt his coffee on the shipping plan when leaving Limerick Harbour. The Captain (Paddy O'Doors) was concerned about his fuel levels, and doubted whether he had sufficient to reroute to Ghana. He asked if we knew anyone in Gaza who wanted anything taking to England or Ireland.
