Cllr. Donnelly welcomes imminent return of ferry service between Cork and Swansea

9th April 2009

Green Party member of Passage West Town Council and candidate for the Carrigaline electoral area of Cork County Council, Cllr. Dominick Donnelly has welcomed the return of a ferry service between Cork and Swansea later in the year.

Cllr. Donnelly, who is an investor in the new co-operative set up to get the service going again, said: “This is wonderful news for the whole Cork region, and is a great example of people power at work.  Everyone who came together and made this campaign a success is to be congratulated.  I look forward to travelling with the Fastnetline, as the new company is now called, later in the year.”

“In years to come I am sure this ferry service will prove to be an essential part of the infrastructure for the Cork region, and beyond into the rest of Munster.  With the airline industry heading in to an inevitable long term decline due the shortage and increasing price of aviation fuel, as well as serious concerns about its effect on global warming, there will be a substantial increase in the use of ferries for international travel in the years ahead.  Cork, and the business and tourism sectors of the region, are now poised to reap the benefits of the reinstatement of this ferry service to the UK,” continued Cllr. Donnelly.
