Telling the tales of some Irish icons

Irish Sea Vehicle Ferries – The First Eighty Years, by Nick Robins

Starting with the first days of modern vehicle ferries in the early 20th century, this history is full of detail. With pictures of a huge number of vessels, the stories of ships plying their trade in the Irish Sea are vividly told.

Author Nick Robins not only looks at when each ship ran services and for how long, he asks the 'whys' and 'hows' in each era and compares the different types of service that each ship provided.
