The decision to sell the OW and cancel the previously intended summer only service from Rosslare to Roscoff ( as initially advertised for 2018 prior to the delay of WB) was a decision made directly in reply to the NTA's findings against IF.
To show the contempt in which IF hold their customers and in case anyone doubts the petty mindness of the upper management in IF here is a quote from their annual report,
"Our final vessel the Oscar Wilde is providing drydock cover for the other vessels in our fleet but has not been scheduled for service after March and is offered for charter or sale. While the Group had intended to operate a summer only service on Rosslare/ France with this vessel, these plans were reviewed following the National Transport Authority interpretation of the EU Regulation
covering Sea Passengers. These interpretations are especially penalising for operations out of peripheral ports like Rosslare. The Group has taken the first step to challenging these interpretations through the courts."
