In either the Times or Mail on Sunday last I read that the current ferry in Dun Laoghaire goes out of service in September and there are no plans to replace her. Can this really be true, Dun Laoghaire without a connection to Anglesea.

Dunno Sinead but that rumour has been going around for a while now. Maybe Justin knows for sure?
Twould be strange to see the Town and Harbour without a Ferry anymore after all these years.
The entire Harbour could end up a massive Marina if it happens. :|

What the article said was that a reduction in berthing fees at Dun Laoghaire will see the ferry back on the run for the summer (resumes 1 April).
It is understood that the service will continue for the next three years, but it may become seasonal, i.e. April - September. Or... the smaller Lynx may takeover for the off peak months.
