Bring Back the Swansea Cork car ferry

The Old Blog Cabin is happy to lend its support to a new web-based campaign called Bring Back the Swansea Cork car ferry ( They have an online petition and I would urge everyone to sign it.

Being without a direct car-ferry link to Britain has seriously affected the south-west of Ireland's tourist industry and has led to significant job losses in the region, not just tourist jobs but maritime and industrial jobs too. Let's hope the people of Cork get behind this campaign and the people of Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford too.

Hi, and the good news is that the people did get behind it, they bought a ship, and she'll be sailing the Cork Swansea route from 1st March 2010!
