The contract has been signed for a new 5-year contract for the provision of a ferry service to Clare Island.

Following pressure from islanders for a more frequent service, the new service will provide for 4 return sailings per day, all year round, between the island and Roonagh Pier.

In addition, the operator will also provide an additional weekly "fast ferry" sailing that will be scheduled at the discretion of the island community.

The €1 million euro contract has been awarded to O'Malley Ferries Clare Island Ltd, and comes into effect from today, 1st July.
