Investment for Fastnet Line

Fastnet Line, which runs the Cork to Swansea route, have welcomed Cork City Council and Kerry County Council’s funding, which totals €250,000 for the ferry company.

Fastnet Line chairman Mr. Buckley says, “We are delighted with this support from the Councils which we believe recognises the important role that Fastnet Line has to play in the economic life of the South West and in particular the vital access which the ferry provides for the tourism industry. Everyone recognises the key role that tourism has to play in the economy and with our exporters generally performing very well in 2010, the ferry is a vital link for both sectors. It is our intention to continue to grow both the passenger and freight parts of our business as aggressively as we can in the current market.”
