The  daff  is  Rockall.  3 W  O
 
After  years  of being uninhabited, unloved and abandoned to the Atlantic gales,  Google tells  me  that both
Scot land (  300miles  away )  and Ireland  ( 290  miles  away )  are both now claiming this  big rock, 65  feet  tall ,
100  feet long  and 83  feet  wide.
 
The reason  —  oil  —  apparently testing  has found that the  Rockall bank  has a potentially  huge  oil field  under
it  and suddenly  everybody  wants  a share.
And  I  thought  that  we  only ever heard  of  Rockall at the  daff  shows  or the  British  shipping  weather  fore-cast.
 
Cheers  John.
