Rathlin Ferry 2

A quick update to the Rathlin ferry blog although to be honest Nevin’s blog is much the best place to go for all of these things. One of the vessels (the MV True Light) which Mr. O’Driscoll was due to use has failed a safety test whilst it is still not clear whether or not Mr. O’Driscoll will be able to use the current boat the MV Canna; his company is due to start the service on 1st July.

Jim Allister has called for the handover to be delayed and as I noted yesterday John Dallat raised a number of questions in Stormont. It seems difficult to believe that there could be no ferry service on Tuesday but the current events must hardly be inspiring confidence in the Rathlin population even leaving aside the possibility of an increase in fares.
