If you have some time available and you wish to travel back in time, the Irish Sea Shipping website has returned to the World Wide Web.

http://www.irishseashipping.com/contents.htm

Filled with loads of info and details that are forgotten by the passage of time, well worth a look.

Off particular interest is the news index which provides a comprehensive and detailed record of the years.

http://www.irishseashipping.com/news/newsindex.htm


As a sample, take March 2002, which if you read to March 10th

http://www.irishseashipping.com/news/2002/032002/032002.htm

Go as far as Stena Line and then a link to

http://homepages.iol.ie/~brianchb/march1/europe.htm

Obviously some links will no longer work, but worth a look.

This intro was posted on FONE by the host of the site

I am pleased to announce that an archive of the Irish Sea Shipping web site which operated between 1995 and 2014 has been restored to the internet.
 
Recently I discovered that using the old PC on which the site had been edited on and updating it to Windows 10 that I could just about make Front Page 2003 work and perform some limited editing.
 
As I had never cancelled the hosting contract to enable me to retain several domain names and an email account restoring the site has been quite an easy process over the past few days.
 
I therefore intend to maintain the Irish Sea Shipping Archive for the foreseeable future - it can be accessed via www.irishseashipping.com
 
As the site has been completely offline for almost 3 years there may be quite a few people out there not familiar with the content.
 
The archive site has a large collection of historic news bulletins up to 2009, many voyage reports often from ships which no longer exist, and hundreds of photographic galleries dating back to the early days of the internet.
 
Hope you enjoy having another chance to have a browse around.
