The local papers have bits and pieces about the Cruise berths etc. The application is with an Bord Pleanala. Wonder if anything will ever come of it??? My feeling is that one stop at Dublin should be enough and we would just split the business by trying to get the cruisers into Dún Laoghaire.

Sad to see a Ferris Wheel down where there should be a Ferry. It should be called the Ferry Wheel !!!

And then maybe we'd qualify for Duty Free?

Here is an interesting one today.

Anyone know what the Stena Adventurer is doing? According to the track shown on the 'Shipfinder' website it set off from Dublin Port and headed southwards to a point off the Bray Head/Greystones area. It then turned northwards and travelled to a point off Dalkey, before returning southwards to the Bray Head/Greystones area again.
Click on ship icon to open page on Shipfinder showing the track of the vessel.

when you get into the map come out a bit so you will see the route in white.

Maybe it was looking for a new rudder in Kilruddery?
