Quickie: FRAZER MARINER in service on Scenic Carlingford Ferry route between Greencastle (Co. Down) and Greenore

Frazer Ferries FRAZER MARINER is currently operating the Scenic Carlingford Ferry service in place of the regular vessel, (FRAZER) AILSING GABRIELLE.  This is to allow the latter vessel to undergo annual survey and maintenance work.  FRAZER MARINER normally operates the seasonal Scenic Foyle Ferry service across Lough Foyle between Magilligan and Greencastle (Co. Donegal), a route on which she replaced AISLING GABRIELLE which was then known as FOYLE VENTURE.  It is not yet clear when AISLING GABRIELLE will return to service on the Carlingford Lough service or whether she will cover for FBD TINTERN on the Passage East ferry service as she did last year, but FRAZER MARINER is currently scheduled to return to service on her home route for the start of this years season towards the end of March.  FRAZER MARINER took up the service between Greencastle (Co. Down) and Greenore (Co. Louth) on Saturday (10th February ’18).
