Thousands welcome Viking longship
"In Denmark, we are certainly proud of the ship, but we are not proud of the damage done to the people of Ireland after the Viking invasion ... However, the warmth you have shown us today shows us that all has been forgiven."
- Brian Mikkelsen, Danish culture minister

Diarmaid Murphy, a marine biologist from Bantry, Co Cork, said the voyage was a life-changing experience.
