Moondance loading at Larne's Curran Quay. In early January 2001 the linkspan at Warrenpoint harbour, used for loading and discharge by the Heysham ferries, suffered a serious mechanical problem rendering it unusable. As a result Seatruck diverted the service to Larne whilst the problem was rectified.

Riverdance looks much better here leaving Warrenpoint in 2006. Just 2 years later in early 2008 she would be blown aground at Cleveleys beach near Blackpool by a freak wave, leading to her being broken up having been declared "a total constructive loss". Albert Bridge [CC BY-SA 2.0], via Geograph
