The Three Sisters Cruise Company welcomed dignitaries from across the south east to New Ross Marina for the official launch of the Barrow Princess River Cruise experience.

Master of ceremonies, Tony Ennis welcomed guests and thanked everyone who contributed to bringing this new service to fruition.

Mr Ennis, of Ennis & Co Business Consultants – himself involved in the project since inception – spoke of the significant investment that this unique innovative undertaking required, not just financially by owner Declan Bates, but in co-operation and collaboration across county boundaries of all the parties involved.

Mr Ennis said the cruiser (vessel) is an example of the collaboration that exist between counties in the south east, adding that the flagship project will link four counties in a new and exciting way.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
