Displaying items by tag: Closure rumours

On social media, recent rumours that Stena Line is to stop operating the ferry service out of Fishguard to Rosslare Europort has been quashed by the company.

As the Western Telegraph writes, a Pembroke Dock social media group this weekend warned of more traffic through the south Wales port as it said that Stena was suspending its services out of Fishguard. The post was later deleted.

The ferry company issued a statement that dismissed the claims as speculation.

“There is no truth in this rumour and Stena Line remains fully committed to its services in Fishguard,” said a company spokesperson.

The route between Wales and Ireland has four daily crossings run by Stena Europe, on what is the shortest crossing on the St. Georges Channel which takes 3 hours 30 minutes.

Two sailings depart Fishguard at 1pm and 11.45pm. The corresponding return crossings from Rosslare depart at 7.30am and 6.15pm respectively.
