The Scenic Carlingford Ferry linking Greenore and Greencastle could finally set sail next week.

The first sailing of the ferry was due to take place last month on June 1st but was postponed by operators Frazer Ferries due to what they said was an unforeseen delay in taking delivery of specialised technical products which needed to be installed before operations can begin.

However, an update on their Facebook page today said the ferry could finally make its maiden voyage “mid to late next week” with an update promised on Monday.

The operators said: “We anticipate all final elements will be in place over the next few days and are working towards sailing mid to late next week. We will post an update on Monday evening.”

The 44 car vessel will take just 15 minutes to traverse what is traditionally more than a one hour car journey with multi-journey tickets to be sold for regular commuters.

The Scenic Carlingford Ferry will operate from 7am to 7.30pm from November to March and 7am to 9.30pm from April to October. It will operate hourly from Greencastle on the hour and hourly from Greenore on the half hour.
