According to the freight timetable she’s back with the 08:05 ex Dub.  However she’s not currently expected to leave Belfast until Thursday night.  Even then that’s unconfirmed, so it’s a case of wait and see I suppose.  It’s not a job that can be rushed.

As I've detailed on NI Ferry Site, W.B. YEATS is now off the booking engine.  Totally.  Oscar is doing some Dublin to France sailings at the start of October by the looks of things with Swift still coming off the schedule on October 8th.  Strangely just Ulysses on the Dublin - Holyhead route from then forward at the moment!

All sorts of speculation flying around as to what the exact delay is and who is responsible.

W.B. YEATS place as second ship has been taken by...  OSCAR WILDE.  Could be an issue for freight if things stay that way.

At that rate Irish Continental Group would have shares in Sian Industies.

My feeling is Irish Ferries will not publish anything until after the sea trials.

It seams so strange that after all the good work the shipyard did they could end up is such a bad place on this build.

Does anybody know what is wrong with Isle of Inishmore. My parents currently travelling on it today from Pembroke to Rosslare. They were told when they checked in at Pembroke that the ship would dock in Rosslare at least 45 mins late due to engine troubles

She’s emotional over Ulysses ha ha.  You said it was engine so why ask

May explain why they didn't bring her North to cover Ulysses' hospitalisation.

Due to leave dry dock around midday last I heard (and no she doesn't appear to have been painted or anything incase anyone is wondering).  She'll probably need trials given the nature of the problem, so hopefully those go well.  Still scheduled to be back on the 08:05 on Friday.
