Sailings between Rosslare and Fishguard in south Wales continue to be suspended as the Stena Europe's stay in dry dock is extended to June 4.

As Afloat previously reported, the Irish Sea crossing was temporarily cancelled, initially until May 22.

Stena Line said that it had been decided to send the vessel for repair at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, following a routine inspection of the ferry.

It was initially anticipated that the repairs would be completed by May 21 and the ferry back on the run by the 22.

However, the company still has no Irish Sea crossings from Fishguard and (yesterday) confirmed that the Europe's stay in dry dock has been extended.

"Stena Line is continuing to carry out works on the Stena Europe, while travel restrictions with the Republic of Ireland remain in place," said a spokesperson for the company.

"An announcement from the Irish Government is expected (today) Friday, May 28, on Digital Green Certificates and International Travel and Stena Line plans to have the Stena Europe back in service on June 4."

In addition earlier today Afloat reported on the Irish Government's position on the Common Travel Area between Ireland and UK.
