    Background: Crowds of excited Irish sightseer gathered at Westport Harbour, Country Mayo, June 18, to catch a glimpse of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco, who not only visited the International Fishing Festival there but went on a successful fishing trip of their own.

    It was not long before both Prince and Princess collected their first haul- one dog-fish spiece! But Prince Rainier caught a skate to the admiration of all and the boat returned to the harbour.

    They had arrived in Eire for a three-day state visit on June 10 but decided to stay on for a holiday tour - much to the delight of fans who wanted to see more of the lovely Princess - former film star Grace Kelly.
