Rosslare Europort is where political rivalries have been put aside in a bid to finally see the (ferry) port achieve its potential.

Although Chairman of the Rosslare District Cllr Ger Carthy went head to head with independent TD Verona Murphy in the last election, he is voicing his support for her calls to secure more operators from the harbour (as alluded in Afloat's coverage yesterday). 

Having also been outspoken on the subject of the port in recent years, Cllr Carthy, according to the Wexford People, said it was positive to see the issue being driven out there.

'I would support Verona in her endeavours to secure more operators from Rosslare Europort,' he said. 'I don't know if the suggestion of moving Dublin Port down to Wexford will be a runner, it may just be flying a kite, but I'm glad to see Rosslare being raised. Many politicians were happy to raise the issue of the port around election time and haven't been seen since.'

Cllr Carthy believes that the only way that Rosslare Europort can truly progress is by looking at its management.
