    Brittany Ferries Cork 1978

    Large ships (mainly bulkers) but some of the smaller cruise liners (upto 150mtrs OAL) still head right up to the city docks and its maintained to a depth so that vessels of 8M draft can reach the city quays. The "Julia" is probably the last ferry to have been docked right up on the city quays when she was laid up. The "Soleal" was up at the city quays 2 weeks ago and is due back later in the year. Check this video link of her and Midnatsol both at the city quays on same day (hope its ok to post this here)
  2. Came across this aerial shot of the "Armorique" sailing upriver to the then Tivoli ferry terminal on her first year of operation in Cork 40 years ago.

    Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    From what I have heard delay was in completing bunkering - didnt finish on Monday night to allow Connemara to sail relatively on time - "Vemahonesty" went out to anchorage on Monday and followed Connemara back in today to complete (she just moved off from being moored alongside Connemara five minutes before Connemara sailed).

    Bunkers completed much earlier and CONNEMARA did actually leave at 22:20 - destination Roscoff
