Devenish Ferry returns for the summer
THE ferry service from Trory point to Devenish Island on Lower Lough Erne has been relaunched for the summer season.
The ferry previously ceased service at the end of August 2010.
The official announcement was made by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) whose spokesman said the service will continue until the end of the summer.
“The Molaise III, an Osprey 12-passengers cruiser accessible to wheelchairs, will run a five day ferry service from Thursday to Monday inclusive.”
Welcoming the news, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, Chairman of Fermanagh District Council said: “We are very pleased to hear that the ferry service has been re-instated for the Summer season. Devenish Island is one of Fermanagh’s iconic landmarks. No holiday in the Fermanagh Lakelands would be complete without a visit to this mystical place.”
Erne North councillor, Raymond Farrell said that the reinstatement of the ferry further added to the county’s tourist appeal.
