My sister in law lives in Omeath. Just moved home with her Japanese husband (he can't get a visa to work in the UK - despite the Brexit scaremongering about foreigners taking all the jobs in the UK) and so they moved there. PITA getting from W'Point over to Omeath when you can see it less than half a mile away!

Will the new ferry encourage me to go that way instead of via Newry? I'll try it once, but I'd suspect it will take far longer. 25 minutes drive to Greencastle, Dear knows how long until you're at the other side (half an hour, if you've just missed it?) Then 15 minutes to Omeath. Hmmm... 25-30 minutes via Newry depending on traffic.

Roll on the bridge.

I would rather ferry than road, More interesting. I assume foot passengers are ok to go too.

Well I think that will put the cat among the pigeons regarding the new bridge at narrow water, I would like to get some feed back on this subject.I am concerned the whole concept of the new bridge will be thrown out.

Can't see it Maurice - All are completely separate projects. I suppose if you wanted to make some sort of scenario out of it, If all goes well with the bridge tourists (and indeed locals) could then avail of a "round the lough" tour by bike or car (I assume busses won't be on the ferry?) crossing on one and returning on the other. Time will tell.
