Ferry happy 50th!

Stena Line 50th anniversary party WHAT: On board the Rosslare-Fishguard ferry WHERE: Passengers sailing from

Rosslare to Fishguard had WHAT ELSE: a pleasant surprise in store on one of the crossings last week, as they were greeted on board with a big party to mark the 50th birthday of the international ferry company. There was live music, fun and games, cake for everybody

and lots of giveaways during the party, with many people

from around County Wexford being on board at the time. While Stena Line is celebrating 50 years, the Rosslare-Fishguard ferry link dates much further back, to 1906. It has been operated by various companies over the years, and has been part of the Stena portfolio since the company - which was founded in Sweden - took over Sealink Ireland & UK

in 1990.
