Belfast Car Ferries operated the ferry service from Belfast’s Donegall Quay to initially to Liverpool’s Langton Dock, then from 1987 Brocklebank Dock. The service was started to replace the P&O service which had ended the previous year in 1981. Belfast Car Ferries ran the service from May 1982 to October 1990 when the service was closed by then owners Irish Continental Group. The service was succeeded in the following year, first by a short-lived P&O service operating from Donegall Quay using Merchant Venture, and then permanently by the new Norse Irish Ferries service operating from Victoria Terminal 2 in Belfast (currently operated by Stena Line). Throughout the 8 years of the service, St Colum Iwas the main vessel in operation. She operated from Belfast overnight, returning from Liverpool during the day. The other ships which operated on the route (covering for St Colum I) were St Patrick II, Gotland, and Earl William.
