Stella line ferry "Julia", to be refitted and renamed on the new route

A recently-refitted 1,800 capacity passenger ferry will be put into service this spring, providing another transport link between Wales and Ireland.

The connection ceased in 2006 but is set to resume from March 1st, 2010.

The route last operated back in 2006, and will resume on 1st March 2010. It will be operated by Fastnet Line, a cooperative set up after an online appeal for investors. People in Ireland and South Wales backed the venture with pledges of €10,000.
