Fundraising efforts to reintroduce the sorely missed Swansea to Cork Ferry are now entering a crucial period where time is running out and donations are quickly needed.
The West Cork Tourism Co-Op are aiming for one final push to re-establish the Swansea to Cork Ferry service which aims to revive the ailing tourism industry in the area.
Over €2 million has already been successfully raised from all over Cork and Kerry but they still need one final push to reach the magic €3 million figure that will see the Ferry active again.
More Roadshows announced and Kerry hotline established for fundraising
On its dedicated website www.bringbacktheswanseacorkferry.com , further details have been released on new roadshows as well as a Kerry hotline set up for ferry share pledges – details can be be found here
The Ferry service between Cork and Swansea is estimated to be worth €35 million annually to the South West region and its loss is being sorely felt amongst its business owners.
Here at DiscoveringIreland, we wish organisers all the best and lets hope they prove successful in seeing their enormous effort get over the line and bring prosperity back to this beautiful part of Ireland.
Thanks for the mention !
It’s not over-dramatic to say that businesses in Cork, Kerry and South Wales really can’t afford to let this opportunity slip by.
We have until the end of this week (27th Feb) to secure the necessary funding – or we may lose this ship. There are not many vessels that can operate within the constraints of Swansea Port – and the one we are currently trying to buy would be ideal. She’s also much more modern and comfortable than the old Superferry – truly too good an opportunity to miss.
Shares in the co-op cost €10k each – but if you can’t run to the full 10k – why not form a synciate with friends, family and business colleagues, and club together to buy a share.
All the info you need is on our website
but if you’d like to see this vital ferry link return, please don’t hang about – do it today !
