Cork Swansea Ferry Should Be Supported

18 February, 2009

EU Candidate, Cllr Toireasa Ferris, has called on all political representatives to publicly urge support for the Cork Swansea Ferry project and do everything in their power to make sure it gets off the ground. Toireasa Ferris said: "The Bring Back the Swansea Cork Ferry has done huge work in bringing the project this far. They have identified a suitable ship, done the negotiations with Cork and Swansea ports, and are very close to getting the required investment needed to get the service going" "However they still require a relatively small amount of investment to complete the project. Public representatives in Cork and Kerry can help by publicly supporting the project and urging investment in the ferry. " "A ferry service from Britain to Cork will be a huge boost to the tourist industry in Cork and Kerry. At a time when we are going through an economic crisis, this self help project can make a serious difference to peoples employment prospects in the region."
