The Government is to set aside a 15 million euro emergency package in order to ensure the continued operation of ferry routes from Rosslare.
The Cabinet has today agreed to designate five sailing routes as â public service obligation route, four of which operate from the Wexford port.
The decision was taken following a request for assistance from a number of ferry companies in light of the Covid_19 pandemic.
The routes that will be kept viable over the next three months are Rosslare-Cherbourg
Rosslare-Bilbao Rosslare-Pembroke and Rosslare-Fishguard
