Re: Brexit going forward

The Brexit Buster.... The Republic of Ireland has launched a 600 hundred wagon roll on roll off ... circumventing the UK with a loss to our all ready hard hit NI ferries and English ferries



‘Brexit-busting’ ferry launched from Dublin Port

Hundreds attend christening of world’s largest short sea roll-on roll-off vessel

he absolutely enormous cargo ship that was christened by Leo Varadkar and other luminaries in Dublin Port on Friday morning is officially to be called Celine but over the course of a long and lavish ceremony marking its birth it was more commonly referred to by its shiny new nickname, Brexit Buster.

By any measure, the vertigo inducing ship moored at a specially built quay at the heart of the sprawling port is massive.

It can accommodate more than 600 lorries and is almost twice the size of any ferry currently operating out of Dublin Port. If all the parking lanes on the 235m long boat were laid end to end, it would stretch to almost 8 kilometres, making it the world’s largest short sea roll-on roll-off vessel.

It is hoped its size will allow hundreds of thousands of additional tonnes of freight go to and from the Continent each year, bypassing Britain and the border controls and paperwork that may be inevitable if a hard Brexit becomes a reality.

Re: Brexit going forward

"Brexit Buster" - strange title. It will not "bust" Brexit, which, as most people have come to accept, is done.
Should British drivers be pleased that the rat run from Ireland to France is being bypassed? Yes!
UK can now start trimming away all the other benefits that Ireland has from UK proximity.

Yet Another 'Old' article……

So Camden's, how has this Brexit Busting Short Sea Vessel performed in the 2 years since it's launch? Can't say I've seen any mention of it in the news over the last 2 years...…

Your right never noticed.

Anyway it seems to be doing well Tintagel, with a second one launched in 2019 and Brexit isn't even here yet .... maybe you just haven't been reading Irish papers on the success.

Who knows it could be in part why our ferry companies are shedding jobs with one considering administration....

The second largest freight ferry to operate on a direct route between Ireland and mainland Europe began its service out of Dublin Port on Friday offering companies additional capacity to cope with Brexit.

The roll-on, roll-off vessel, owned by Luxembourg-based shipping line CLdN, increases the company’s capacity on direct sailings between Dublin Port and mainland Europe by 20 per cent, offering seven directly sailings a week.

The company accounts for 40 per cent of all units moved between Dublin and continental Europe. The MV Celine is the largest vessel to service this route, offering capacity of eight kilometres of lane space for trucks.

The increased capacity on direct sailings to mainland Europe will be essential if the UK’s departure from the EU leads to traffic congestion and delays resulting from new border customs checks at British ports.


There is no doubt that there is going to be more trade going to continental Europe, a greater proportion than will go to the UK, precisely because of Brexit. You can have all the checks in the world but those checks are on the declining volume with Britain. We need the capacity to continental Europe.”

I know you live in a world of denial, so sorry to be the bringer of good news - Brexit is done: UK has left EU.

Technically? Starmer has said, he’s not looking to rejoin, that ship has sailed.
TBF though we are back to the votes & advocates of remain in Westminster just hasn’t got them.

unusual choice of name MV Celine anyone that does word association with words Celine and Ships comes up with another well known ship built in Belfast by Harland & Wolff Hopefully this one wouldn't suffer the same fate
