#ISLANDS – A public meeting between the islanders of Cape Clear and the Cailín Óir Ferry Service will be held on Saturday 28th January, so to discuss proposed changes to the ferry schedule in 2012.
The meeting is to be held in the local community hall, where other matters in relation to the year round service between Baltimore and the Gaeltacht speaking island will be aired. The island which is three miles long and one and half mile wide has a resident population of 130 inhabitants, which swells significantly during the summer months.
In March last year a new main ferry was purchased the Island Princess and renamed Dún an Óir II. She operates a schedule that varies between one and up to three round trips daily, subject to the day and time of the year, to view the current winter timetable click HERE.
