This would be a massive blow to Rosslare if it happened, to lose Cobelfret to Dublin was unlucky, to have Celtic Link sail away would be a disaster.
I think the charges really effect Celtic as they are a freight ship carrying passengers while Stena and Irish Ferries are passenger ships carrying freight, as mentioned in the article the business mix is different.
Rosslare does have its advantages with the multiple berths if there is a problem there are other options available for the ship, if they move to a single berth port in Arklow, what will be the situation with maintenance and dredging the port and hard standing to store trailers, trailer tugs and drivers etc. If you get a good service from the port then the charges are necessary evil.
The question for Celtic Link is has their business increased so successfully because they are based there or despite being based in Rosslare.
Always enjoy watching the trucks reversing onto the Norman Voyager in Rosslare, great admiration for the drivers doing that.
Nothing to do with Celtic Link but I wish that the port authority in Rosslare would sort out the signage and internal road network for traffic arriving into the port, to be first of the Europe or Inishmore as a first time visitor must be bewildering, they are very few signs or markings to let you know where to go or how to leave the port. Rosslare you can do better.
