Helicopters, yachts, ribs, powerboats and the RNLI all came out to see off the 40 year old Cunard liner  as she departed on her final voyage.

Many hundreds lined Camden point and the beaches around Crosshaven to get a final glimpse of this famous liner.

She will now become a floating hotel in Dubai.

The QEII was launched on the Clyde in 1967 and was commisioned in 1969. She has covered over 5.6 million nautical miles.

She has paid five visits to Cork Harbour.
