Default Cork Santander gone bang

Brittany Ferries to cease sailings on Cork Santander route from February due to the rise in illegal Immigrants stowing away on trucks boarding the Ferry

Interesting. I wonder if there'll be increased illegal stowaways on the Cherbourg-Rosslare route then.

Shame - I didn't use the ferry but it is a really beautiful part of the world there that was opened up to families with the ferry

Irish media reporting that it suits Brittany Ferries and hauliers to go to Rosslare due to its proximity to Dublin and a better road network so thanks Simon for the Ringaskiddy road being shite.

The Authorities will need to up their game on detecting illegals on that route so.

I think it’s the proximity of the port in Santander to the city that made it difficult to police

Simon Coveney is backing the road while Jerry Buttimer is down with the objectors (M28 steering group) and both for and against the road as usual.

Presumably when the M28 upgrade happens and the container port is finished, reestablishing the route will be plain sailing...........

And with the biggest bridge in the country having just opened to bypass NewRoss it's brought Rosslare effectively a lot closer to people in W'fud and Tipp than previously who might otherwise have used Ringaskiddy
