Sailings resume after Rosslare ferry incident

Ferry services have resumed following an incident in which two ferries collided off Rosslare Harbour yesterday.

STENA LINE FERRY services between Rosslare and Fishguard have resumed following an incident in which two ferries collided at Rosslare Harbour yesterday.

A Stena Europe craft was attempting to dock on arrival from Fishguard when it made contact with the Irish Ferries ‘Oscar Wilde’ ferry, which was in port at the time on Friday evening.

A Met Éireann buoy stationed off Co Wexford showed gusts of up to 35 knots being present at about 6pm when the incident occurred.

Although sailings were delayed this morning, they have now resumed between the two harbours – however all passengers have been advised to contact the Ferrycheck phoneline on (01) 204 7799 for details on this evening’s sailing.
