Car ferry could give €10m lift

A PROPOSED cross-border car ferry linking Down and Louth could provide a e10m a year boost for the counties, an economic study has predicted.

The service from Greencastle in Northern Ireland across Carlingford Lough to Greenore would create 24 direct jobs and sustain 300 additional jobs in the wider area.

The ferry route, which is close to the mouth of the lough, could be operating before the planned Narrow Water bridge is opened further up the waterway.
