TUG drivers and hauliers using Rosslare Europort have created a “stay home” message which has been captured by drone photography.

The formation of trailers and tugs into the words “Stay Home” is intended to appeal to non-essential travellers during the Covid-19 pandemic, Rosslare Europort says.

Over 20,000 trailers and trade cars have been handled through Rosslare Europort and the ports of Bilboa, Fishguard, Cherbourg, Pembroke and Zeebrugge over the last number of weeks, it says.

“While we greatly miss our passengers using the port, we thank you for staying at home during these very challenging times and look forward to seeing you again in the near future,” the port says in an appeal issued through Iarnród Éireann.

It says its current focus is on continuing to “ remain fully operational through the dedication of our frontline team”, working in conjunction with the shipping lines and haulage industry to deliver essential goods throughout Ireland.

“We are working hard and ask that you stay home,” the port says.
