Irish Sea Shipping - News Bulletin Archives 1997 to 2009

Until December 2009 Irish Sea Shipping provided a news facility as part of the web site. However, given the development of online news facilities it was decided that following an eight month break in site updates during 2010, all future news would be posted to the associated Irish Sea Ships Yahoo Group. However, all of the news bulletins written from January 1997 to December 2009 have been preserved. Please note that apart from some limited editing and reformatting of the pages the news files they remain as written and provide a fascinating record of Irish Sea Shipping between 1997 and 2009. [Unfortunately the 1995 and 1996 files were not retained]  Visitors to these pages are reminded that not all the hyperlinks or email addresses contained within the news files will now work.
