  2. Kerry will continue to operate Bilbao-Rosslare but in freight only mode according to https://www.niferry.co.uk/pr-brittany-ferries-confirms-immediate-changes-to-ferry-schedules/
  3. Few pics of Brittany Ferries office at Rosslare Ferry Terminal. Some more interior shots of the terminal added to this album https://flic.kr/s/aHsjUZ2Jao
  4. Looks like Mondays arrival pictured above was the final one into Cork from Santandar. According to Marine Traffic ""Kerry"is on her way to Rosslare from Santandar. Shes due to arrive there at 730am tomorrow ahead of beginning the new Rosslare-Bilbao service. .
  5. Few pics of Kerry arriving in Cork yesterday afternoon after her penultimate sailing from Santandar. Port of Cork tug "Gerry O'Sullivan" alongside in the last photo.
  6. The Alta an 80-metre cargo ship, which had been abandoned and adrift in the Atlantic for more than a year, has run aground near Ballycotton in east Cork. Ghost ship on the rocks in Ballycotton had been drifting for more than a year Abandoned cargo ship runs aground on Cork coast
  7. Thanks for the report and photos. Looks fantastic. Its a route I've always wanted to travel on and after reading this even more!
  8. Yeah tehre was a bar and observation area upstairs but its been closed for many years. Last time I remember being up tehre was in teh early 2000s.
  9. I'd imagine that artice is a few years old. Theyve tidies and brightened it up a lot since then. No 5star by any means but certianly useable.
  10. Good point. TBH as long as the return leg brings me back to Cork we dont really mind where the outward leg begins. Over the years I reckon we've had used Rosslare for outbound legs 3 or 4 times as much as Cork.
  11. So the plan for the annual trip to France this year was to sail in and out of Cork (for the first time since 2010). Finish work Monday evening at 6pm and after dinner pack the car and make the 25 minute drive to Ringaskiddy. However it looks like its a day off work and a drive to Rosslare
  12. Ger Carthy a councillor in Wexford and candidate in the upcoming Irish general election seems to think its a done deal https://twitter.com/RosslareHbr/status/1221793301151518722/photo/1
  13. Yeah that's Fastnet Lines Julia taken in early January 2010 before entering service in March that year. Pic was taken at Horgans Quay Cork which was where the Cork ferries to Wales ferries departed from up the late 60s.
  14. Happy Christmas to everyone! A special thanks to the admin and mods for all their hard work and making this an enjoyable place to visit 👍
  15. Few pics of Kerry arriving in Cork harbour this afternoon
