Always remember, Rory loves his little Murkies.Rory Rigwell

The Irish Pride Industries shipyard is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.


Prior to the Great War, the Irish Pride Industries shipyard was used to produce midsized shipping vessels.[1] A few months after the bombs, around April 3, 2078, Wayne Tournquist, Lance Ames and Leon Ames took trucks from the shipyard to build a wall around their settlement at West Everett Estates.

Two centuries later, around 2287, the shipyard was inhabited by the late Rory Rigwell, who met his misguided fate while attempting to raise and train mirelurks as pets. For this purpose, he set up an announcement system from the terminal in the pilothouse of the boat so that the site is constantly ringing with good-natured, positive messages for the mirelurks. He affectionately calls them "Murkies," and reminds them to be good, and not to pinch.

The terminal details the "progress" he made with the mirelurks, and gives the location of a stash of his personal belongings he stowed away in the mirelurks' nest for safe-keeping after he witnesses his "Murkies" kill a group of intruders with casual ease.


A run-down shipyard located directly north of Bunker Hill, across the water. There are two smaller buildings just outside, along with a few docks on the south side. The western entrance to the building opens into a small lobby area with a closet, as well as a restroom and side office down the hallway, leading into a break room. Going right in the break room, there is a slightly larger restroom, and going left there is a locker room.

Just past this break room area, the main part of the building, a large room with a dry dock, opens up. A ramp and a staircase leading to the roof of the break room area outside each entrance to this main room. There are two walled-off workshop areas in the northeast and southwest corners of the room. In the center of the room, in the dry dock, is a fishing boat with planks leading onboard on the starboard side of the boat. Inside the room on the base level of the boat is a small eating area, with a few lockers. Up a staircase, near the back of the boat, is the pilothouse. In the pilothouse, there is a bed, a couple of chairs, and a desk with Rory's terminal on top. The locked door on the eastern side of the dock area leads outside, into a small shed on the back of the building.

Towards the front of the boat, on the right side, is a ramp leading down into the dry dock. Rory's body is found along with his stash in the southeast corner, off the stern on the starboard side of the boat, with the key to the door on the eastern side of the building. Additional mirelurks will spawn when the floor of the dry dock is explored.

There are a total of four leveled mirelurks (mostly in the area under the boat), two clusters of mirelurk eggs that will spawn mirelurk hatchlings when disturbed, and a couple of loose hatchlings crawling around.

Notable lootEdit

  • In the building on the west side, there is a power armor station.

  • The positive messages playing over the speakers can be turned off using the terminal in the boat inside the shipyard.
